271. We All Believe in One True God (Credo)

1 We all believe in one true God,
Who created earth and heaven,
The Father, who to us in love
Has the right of children given.
He in soul and body feeds us;
All we need his hand provides us.
He through snares and perils leads us,
Watching that no harm betides us.
He cares for us by day and night;
All things are governed by his might.

2 We all believe in Jesus Christ,
His own Son, our Lord, possessing
An equal Godhead, throne and might,
Source of ev'ry grace and blessing,
Born of Mary, virgin mother,
By the power of the Spirit,
Made true man, our elder brother,
That the lost might life inherit,
Was crucified by sinful men
And raised by God to life again.

3 We all confess the Holy Ghost,
Who, sweet hope and comfort giving,
Now with the Father and the Son
In eternal light is living,
Who the Church, his own creation,
Keeps in unity of spirit;
Here forgiveness and salvation
Daily come through Jesus' merit.
All flesh shall rise, and we shall be
In bliss with God eternally.
