The Apostle's Creed

Lyra Fidelium: Twelve Hymns on the Twelve Articles of the Apostle's Creed
by S. J. Stone, B.A.,
"I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the understanding also."

The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth
and in Jesus Christ His only son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried.
He descended into Hell: the third day He rose again again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost,
the Holy Catholic* Church: the communion of the saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
the life everlasting.
* The word "catholic" in this context does not refer to the Roman Catholic Church but means "universal or including believers all around the world."
