60. We All Believe In One True God

1 We all believe in one true God,
Who created earth and heaven;
As Father he to us in love
Has the name of children given;
In His goodness He would feed us,
Soul and body e'er sustaining;
Thro' all danger He would lead us,
We from Him all safety gaining;
He watches o'er us day and night
And all things rules with boundless might.

2 And we believe in Jesus Christ,
God's own Son, all pow'r possessing,
Who honor with the Father shares,
Fount of ev'ry grace and blessing.
Born of Mary, virgin mother,
By the working of the Spirit;
He became our elder Brother,
That we heaven might inherit;
Was crucified be sinful men
And raised by God to life again.

3 The Holy Ghost we also own,
Who, in highest heaven dwelling
With the God the Father and the Son,
Comforts us beyond all telling.
In one spirit He united us
Who as Christians here are living;
For our suff'rings He requites us,
Freely all our sins forgiving;
All flesh again shall rise and we
Eternal life in heav'n shall see.
