Representative Text

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;
through all snares and perils leads us,
watching that no harm betide 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 for all our sin
and raised by God to life again.

3 We all confess the Holy Ghost,
who, in highest heaven dwelling
with the God the Father and the Son,
comforts us beyond all telling;
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.
