Carol Communion: Confession of Faith
Tune: St. Louis
86 86 76 86
We all believe in one true God,
Who o’er His works doth reign.
The Father sent His Son to earth
To bear our sin-brought pain.
His Word wrought all creation;
He holds it in His hand.
And naught is done that’s good or right
Save by His holy plan.
We all believe in Jesus Christ,
The Father’s one True Son —
True God, true man, by Holy Ghost
Was to the Virgin born;
Through cross and death forgave us,
Then rose to reign on high;
Still He’ll return to take His flock
To heaven’s rich supply.
The Holy Spirit we confess
Was sent to bring us life;
Through Gospel and baptismal flood
Creates the Church, Christ’s bride.
Now resurrection waits us —
We’ll rise when comes the Son —
And through eternity we’ll laud
The True God, Three-in-One. Amen.
