The Trinity Is Missing from Christian Worship Music

"While churches praise God from whom all blessings flow, they don't praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost." - CToday

The doctrinally shallow worship of many churches continues to manifest an underlying problem with contemporary Christianity.  May God help us to be more robust and intentional in teaching sound doctrine through our Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.

Today we sang Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation in which the last verse says:

Laud and honor to the Father,
laud and honor to the Son,
laud and honor to the Spirit,
ever Three and ever One,
One in might, and One in glory,
while unending ages run.

I love finding hymns which teach the doctrine of the Trinity and include them often.

Like Paul, I find quite a few clear references to the Trinity in the hymns we sing.  Some are in our doctrinally rich hymnal, "Hymns of Grace and Glory" edited by Joan Pinkston, and others are added as inserts in our Sunday bulletins.  I don't have those in front of me at the moment, but one is "A Triune Prayer."  (I think that one may be written by Molly James, but my memory may be faulty here.)  Others have been around for a long time.

All Creatures of Our God and King, which we have not sung in a long time, and one of the verses is a simple trinitarian statement:

Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!
