lyrics i love

On September 11, 2001, I was watching a video of a choral group performing this song when I found out the tragic news.

Somehow the lyrics are still poignant to me when I contemplate our country.

****

We believe in the Father, who created all that is

And we believe the universe and all therein is His

As a loving heavenly Father, He yearned to save us all

To lift us from the fall . . . We believe

We believe in Jesus the Father’s only Son

Existing uncreated before time had begun

A sacrifice for sin, He died then rose again

To ransom sinful men, We believe

We believe in the spirit who makes believers one

Our hearts are filled with His presence

The Comforter has come

The kingdom unfolds in His plan

Unhindered by quarrels of man

His church upheld by His hand . . . We believe

Though the earth be removed

And time be no more

These truths are secure

God’s word shall endure

Whatever may change, these things are sure . . . We believe

So if the mountains are cast down into the plains

When kingdoms all crumble, this one remains

Our faith is not subject to seasons of man

With our fathers we proclaim

We believe our Lord will come as he said

The land and the sea will give up their dead

His children will reign with Him as their head

 

We believe

We believe
