1  Firmly I believe and truly
God is Three, and God is One;
And I next acknowledge duly
Manhood taken by the Son.

2  And I trust and hope most fully
In that manhood crucified;
And each thought and deed unruly
Do to death, as He has died.


3  Simply to His grace and wholly
Light and life and strength belong,
And I love supremely, solely,
Him the holy, Him the strong.

4  And I hold in veneration,
For the love of Him alone,
Holy Church as His creation,
And her teachings are His own.


5  And I take with joy whatever
Now besets me, pain or fear,
And with a strong will I sever
All the ties which bind me here.

6  Adoration aye be given,
With and through the angelic host,
To the God of earth and Heaven,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
