112a. We all Believe in One True God

1 We all believe in one true God,
Maker of all earth and heaven;
The Father, who to us in love
Hath the claim of children given.
He in soul and body feeds us,
All we want His hand provides us,
Through all snares and perils leads us,
Watches that no harm betides us;
He cares for us by day and night,
All things are governed by His might.

2 And we believe in Jesus Christ,
His own Son, our Lord, possessing
An equal Godhead, throne and might,
Through whom comes the Father's blessing;
Conceived of the Holy Spirit,
Born of Mary, virgin mother!
That lost man might inherit
Made true Man, our elder Brother,
Was crucified by sinful men,
And raised by God to life again.

3 Also the Holy Ghost we own,
With sweet grace and comfort giveth,
And with the Father and the Son
In eternal glory liveth;
Who the Christian church doth even
Keep in unity of spirit;
Sins are verily forgiven
Through the blest Redeemer's merit;
All flesh shall rise again, and we
Shall live with God eternally.
