Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “We Believe in One True God”

We Believe in One True GodIn Ephesians 5:15-21, we are given directions on how to properly live as Christians. One of these is to sing “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.” Each Monday, I share a song from history or present day that present a high view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.

We Believe in One True God

by Tobias Clausnizer (1668)

We believe in one true God
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Ever-present help in need,We Believe in One True God
Praised by all the heav’nly host,
By whose mighty pow’r alone
All is made and wrought and done.

We 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 sin’s misery.

We 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.

    There’s so much richness to be gleaned from those old hymns. While we have wonderful contemporary music, we need to be careful not to discard the old in favor of the new. thanks for your pos

    I never heard of this song before! I love the words.
    Thanks for sharing!

  • What power in professing what we believe! Thank you for sharing this 🙂

  • My mom shared a book with me just yesterday on the old hymns and the stories behind them. So inspiring!

  • I love this hymn! It was played at my aunt’s funeral a few years back. My mom and I were talking about it the other day and couldn’t remember what it was. Finding the words here and then listening to the music on Youtube, really blessed my heart tonight. I’ll have to let her know what hymn it was we were talking about. Thanks for sharing with Thankful Thursdays.

    • Aw! That is so sweet! I love how God orchestrates things like this and lets us see these moments of His grace and mercy.

    I love this series, each week I click over to youtube and listen to the hymn while I write the comment to you. This one has beautiful organ music and I feel like I’m at church, the feeling of awe and love surrounds me. Thank you so much for sharing these hymns with us, some I have known, but others are new to me. They sooth my soul!

  • I love this part of the verse – “making melody in my heart to the Lord!” He has given me a new song to sing and I will sing it for as long as I live! Thanks for linking up with Grace and Truth.

    This is a great series! I think we often forget how powerful singing in worship can be. This was a new hymn to me. Thanks for sharing!
