Here’s a setting of the Nicene Creed from the new TCH Sheffield album, Dust to Life. It’s really important for churches to confess together the truths of the faith and to do so in ways that express our continuity with saints across the ages. I wrote those lyrics based on the Nicene Creed in the hope it could prove a great alternative for those churches who say the Creed on a regular basis and those who should (i.e. the rest).
Here are the lyrics:
1. We believe in God the Father,
Lord almighty over all:
seen and unseen worlds created
by his will and at his call.
We believe in our Lord Jesus,
God from God and Light from Light.
Through him all things were created,
held together through his might.
We will worship God the Father,
we will worship God the Son,
we will worship God the Spirit,
triune God, the Three-in-One.
2. We believe in Christ our Saviour,
born of Mary, God made man.
On the cross he died to save us,
to complete the Father’s plan.
We believe he rose as promised,
conquered death, reversed the Fall.
Now he reigns and reigns forever;
soon he’ll come to judge us all.
3. We believe in God the Spirit,
who through prophets breathed God’s word:
through that word new life is given;
through that word God’s voice is heard.
We believe in baptised people,
sharing life with God above.
We await the resurrection;
we await eternal love.
