THE APOSTLES' CREED
METER:  CM
SUGGESTED TUNES:  AZMON or ARLINGTON
This is the meter to such hymns as "O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing" and "Am I a Soldier of the Cross"

1.  I do be-lieve in one true God, the Fa-ther Al-might-y,
   Who made the heav-ens and the earth and ev-ery-thing in them.

2.  I do be-lieve in Je-sus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
   Who by God's Spi-rit was con-ceived, of Vir-gin Ma-ry born.

3.  He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late and was cru-ci-fied;
    He died, and in a tomb was laid, then rose on the third day.

4.  To heav-en's heights he did a-scend to sit at God's right hand;
    From there he'll come a-gain to judge the liv-ing and the dead.

5.  The Ho-ly Spi-rit I con-fess, the ho-ly cath-olic Church,
   And the com-mun-ion of the saints of ev-ery place and time.

6.  I do be-lieve that God for-gives our sins which we con-fess,
   And rais-es us e-ter-nal-ly to a new life with God.
