1.  We all believe in one true God,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Ever-present Help in need,

Praised by all the heav’nly host,

By whose mighty pow’r alone

All is made and wrought and done.

2.  We all believe in Jesus Christ,

Son of God and Mary’s Son,

Who descended from His throne

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 upholds and comforts us

In all trials, fears, and needs.

Blest and Holy Trinity,

Praise forever be to Thee!
