1. We All Believe in One True God
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Ever-present Help in need,
Praised by all the heavenly host,
By whose mighty power alone
All is made and wrought and done.
2. We all belive in Jesus Christ,
Son of God and Mary's Son,
Who descended from His thrones
And for us salvation won;
By whose cross and death are we
Rescued from all misery.
3. We all confess the Holy Ghost,
Who from both fore'er proceeds;
Who uphold and comforts us
In all trials, fears,and needs.
Blest and holy Trinity,
Praise forever be to Thee!
