We are working through a thematic series on Sunday mornings at Redeemer called, Redisvoering the Greatness of God that focuses on Theology Proper and how these core doctrines of God's character connect to the gospel and enrich our faith. One of the songs that we have been singing during this series is Michael Bleecker's modern hymn, O God of Our Salvation. It's a great trinitarian hymn that you should be singing in your church if you aren't already. Here's Michael giving some instruction and insight into the song.
O God of Our Salvation
O God of our salvation Who reigns upon the throne The sovereign Father, great is He From whom all blessings flow
Chorus O God of our salvation, From Whom redemption comes O Father, Son and Spirit, The blessed three in one
Behold the Son our Savior Who for our sin was slain The Christ Who purchased with His blood The wretched souls of men.
O God, The Holy Spirit Revealing Deity The fount of life and love divine throughout eternity
Bridge Ascribe unending praises to the God Who reigns on high How matchless is His power, His glory how divine Ascribe O church the greatness and the glory due His name One God, One Being, One Essence, o Triune God proclaimed Amen - Amen - Amen - Amen
Written by Matt Boswell, Michael Bleecker, John Warren
