Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty

Representative Text

I believe in one God the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
And of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only begotten Son of God,
begotten of his Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light,
very God of very God,
begotten, not made,
of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made;
who for us men and for our salvation
came down from heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary,
and was made man,
and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.
He suffered and was buried,
and the third day he rose again
according to the scriptures,
and ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of the Father.
And he shall come again with glory
to judge both the quick and the dead;
whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceedeth from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son together
is worshiped and glorified,
who spake by the prophets.
And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins.
And I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Notes

Scripture References: st. = Gen. 1:1, John 1:14, Matt. 1:20-21, Mark 15-16, Luke 24:51, Eph.1:20, John 14:16-17, 1 Cor. 12:4-7, 12-13, Rom. 6:4, 1 Cor. 15:21 While the familiar Apostles' Creed is associated with baptism (see 518 and 519), the Nicene Creed is associated particularly with the Lord's Supper and is professed weekly throughout the world by many churches, including Roman Catholic, Episcopal, and Lutheran congregations. See also page 842 for a discussion of this ecumenical creed; the text is found in the Psalter Hymnal (p. 814) with a brief historical footnote (note that the hymn text differs from the modern translation of the creed in a few phrases). Liturgical Use: See PHH 518. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
