New City Catechism Question and Answer 3

Question 3
How many persons are there in God?
Answer
There are three persons in the one true and living God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

These accompanying songs don’t attempt to include the whole answer, which is a bit disappointing given the abbreviated nature of the answers already.

Question 2
What is God?
Answer
God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He is eternal, infinite, and unchangeable in his power and perfection, goodness and glory, wisdom, justice, and truth. Nothing happens except through him and by his will.

(The song is a minimalist expression of the answer, to say the least.)
