Here are some resources in trying to pursue a more fully Trinitarian language of worship. We love these great Trinitarian hymns – either because they reflect a balance of the whole Trinity in their text or emphasize the often neglected Spirit role in the Trinitarian ecology.
Collect on the Trinity:
Almighty God, you have revealed to your Church your eternal Being of glorious majesty and perfect love as one God in Trinity of Persons: Give us grace to continue steadfast in the confession of this faith, and constant in our worship of you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; for you live and reign, one God,
now and for ever. Amen.

Hymns of Faith - Songs for the Apostles Creed
The apostles creed is a wonderful way to measure the breadth or lack-there-of of your song repertoire. This is a collection of 12 hymns each addressing one aspect of the apostles creed.
Pentecost Songs - Hymns for the Holy Spirit
25 songs reflecting on and singing to the Holy Spirit. This is often one of the most glaring deficiences in our worship of the triune God-head. Give your people language and songs so they can sing to the whole Trinity.

Creed of Athanasius (so called)
Now the Catholic Faith is this, / that we worship one God in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity; Neither confusing the Persons, / nor dividing the Substance. For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, / another of the Holy Ghost; But the Godhead of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is all one, / the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal. Such as the Father is, such is the Son, / and such is the Holy Ghost; The Father uncreated, the Son uncreated, the Holy Ghost uncreated; The Father infinite, the Son infinite, the Holy Ghost infinite; The Father eternal, the Son eternal, the Holy Ghost eternal; And yet there are not three eternals, but one eternal; As also there are not three uncreated, nor three infinites, / but one infinite, and one uncreated. So likewise the Father is almighty, the Son almighty, / the Holy Ghost almighty; And yet there are not three almighties, but one almighty. So the Father is God, the Son God, the Holy Ghost God; And yet there are not three Gods, / but one God.
