What Hymn Is This?

Below is a song that is full of biblical theology.  Is it a hymn?  What kind of song do you think it is?  I recently got the current album of this musician from iTunes.

Can you guess where lyrics below come from?

TRIUNE PRAISE LYRICS
VERSE 1
Praise God the Father, the Immortal Creator (1 Cor. 8:6)
For Your glory you made us (Is. 43:6), You’re the Sovereign Orchestrator (Eph. 1:11)
All that You decree will most surely come to happen (Is. 14:24)
You’re awesome as can be and Your glory none can fathom (Ps. 104:1)
Nothing could ever stain You, the heavens can’t contain You (2 Chron. 6:18)
We thank You for sending Your Son to explain You (John 1:18)
Otherwise we would have remained in the dark but You sent Your Holy Spirit to spark a change in our hearts (Matt. 4:16-17, 2 Cor. 4:6)
According to Your eternal purpose and will
You determined to reveal Yourself to those who deserve to be killed
(Luke 10:21, Rom. 1:32)
Those of us whom You foreknew adore You
We praise You that You predestined us to be conformed to
The image of Your Son who’s the radiance of Your glory
(Romans 8:29, Heb. 1:3)
When I meditate on it, the weightiness of it floors me
(1 Chron. 16:25,Psalm 139:6)
So Father, we’ll praise you over and over again (Ps. 34:1)
Because You sent Your only Son to atone for our sins (Dan. 9:24,1 John 4:9)

CHORUS
Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son,
Glory to The Spirit- Three and Yet One
One in Your essence, Three in Your Person
The same in Your nature, distinct in Your working
Oh my soul- behold the wonder of the Trinity
Blessed be the Trinity, Oh, what a mystery!
I’ll stand amazed for the rest of my days
Pouring out my heart in Triune praise

Who do you think this is?

Imagine if our contemporary worship songs were as deep!

Marie,
I thought that was an awesome worship song, thanks for the link.

Mark,
It appears as if those lyrics come from God’s Word. Where can I get the tune from? I didn’t find a link.

Tony,

It’s a trick. I added this cool collapsible tool so you can find your answer by clicking “Who do you think this is?”

Mark,

Geez I feel stupid now. I couldn’t get it to pop up yesterday.

Hey I ran across my pastor this evening at dinner and he asked me what a good book/paper on the doctrine of election was. We have a member of our largely non-reformed church who is asking questions and searching scriptures (Soli Deo Gloria!). Can you think of anything? The problem is that you can’t understand election properly unless you cover the doctrine of depravity can you?

Thanks in advance,

Tony
