1 I believe in God the Father,
Maker of all heav'n and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, our Savior,
God's own Son, of matchless worth;
by the Spirit was conceived,
of the virgin Mary born,
he in whom I have believed:
God Almighty, Three in One.
2 Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
crucified, for me he died;
laid within the grave so silent,
gates of hell he opened wide;
for the stone-sealed tom was empty;
on the third day he arose;
into heaven made his entry,
mighty conqu'ror of his foes.
3 At God's right hand he is seated
till his coming, as he said;
final judgment will be meted
to the living and the dead;
I confess the Holy Spirit
who was sent through Christ the Son
to apply salvation's merit -
God, the Spirit, Three in One.
4 I believe the church of Jesus,
universal, e'er remains;
we are one through all the ages,
in communion of the saints.
I believe sins are forgiven,
that our bodies will be raised
to eternal life in heaven:
ever let his name be praised.
