to worship your Unity

3600731119_e7b20b3dde_b

Most blessed and glorious Trinity, Three Persons in one God,
    teach us to worship and adore that absolute Trinity, that perfect Unity.
And that we may adore you, that our worship may not be a mockery,
    make us to know that we are one in Christ,
    as the Father is one with the Son, and the Son with the Father.
Prevent us from looking upon our sectarianism as if it were a destiny.
Help us to regard it as a rebellion against you.

Help us to see all distinctions more clearly
    in the light of your everlasting love.
Help us to recognize the truth of every effort to express something
    of that which passes knowledge.
Help us to feel and confess the feebleness of our own efforts.
So may your holy name embrace us more and more.
So may all creatures in heaven and earth and under the earth at last
    glorify you throughout all ages. Amen.

F.D. Maurice, 1805–1872, Anglican theologian and author
