The Angelic Trisagion
The Angelic Trisagion (


So wonderful,
So gloriously majestic in HIS creation works
HE made the Heavens
And the earth;
Reigning above and beneath,
In glory and honor

He made man the earth to rule,
Made him perfect
And holy in HIS image;
In likeness to think and plan
In the union of HIMSELF
And the earth;
Making him responsible to HIM,
And for it

Resources of earth to him bestowed
To well rule the earth.
Multiply he must,
To cover his terrain;
‘Cause his spirit,
Within his body contained.

Fruitful will be his hands,
Guided his feet
His plans will HE bless.
The earth to replenish,
He must.

The waters to sail,
The air to fly, and
The ground to walk.
Dominion he has
Over other creatures.

In creation man was last;
Male and female created He them
In formation, man was first
Of all living;
And last of them all.

In his prime was he formed;
With strength like the unicorn;
In the wisdom of HIS love;
Innocence of the dove;
Patience of Patriarch Abraham;
Keenness of the mustard;
Speed with which words could fly;
Endurance of Ever;
Confidence of a baby in its father’s arms;
And the courage of King David.

Seven years and more,
He tended alone the Eden:
Watching the trees grow
And the lovely fruits pleasant to behold.
God’s caringly saw his loneliness
And a help meet provided;
Formed from his ribs

Help meet fell prey
To the subtil serpent
Adam fell along
Better we fall together
She’s part of me
God alone knew
How long
Before the fall

In pains, the woman would bear;
Satan, her seed would crush;
The ground for him was cursed

Glory to the LORD!
Creation’s blessing restored.
The curse on the ground,
Christ’s blood redeemed.
For those in HIM do trust
