Representative Text

1 Wir gläuben all an einen Gott,
Vater, Sohn, heilgen Geist,
der uns hilft in aller Noth,
den die Schaar der Engel preist,
D=der durch seine große Kraft
Alles wirket, thut und schafft.

2 Wir gläuben auch an Jesum Christ,
Gottes und Marien Sohn,
der vom Himmel kommen ist
und uns führt ins Himmels Thron
und uns durch sein Blut und Tod
Hat erlöst aus aller Noth.

3 Wir gläuben auch an heilgen Geist,
der von beiden gehen aus,
der uns Trost und Beistand leist't
wider alle Furcht und Graus.
Heilige Dreifaltigkeit
sei gepreißt zu aller Zeit.
