I Believe in God the Father
Uploaded on Jan 12, 2019
The Heidelberg Catechism, a reformational confession, was written in 1563. It elaborations on four blocks of material: the Apostles' Creed, Word and Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord's Prayer. This hymn is based on Lord's Days 9 & 10 which treat the first article of the Apostles' Creed.
I've dedicated this song to my brother John and his wife, Bonita.
1.I believe in God the Father,
he who made both heav’n and earth.
Out of nothing he created
everything that he called forth.
By his providential pow’r
he upholds it every hour.
For the sake of Christ my Saviour
he’s my God and loving Father.
2.I rely on God completely
as to have no anxious doubt
that he’ll give me all that’s needful,
for my soul and flesh throughout.
He will turn to my own good
all the sorrows of this world.
For he is the God Almighty
and a Father who loves fully.
3. God upholds all of creation
by his ever present power
so that health and also sickness,
rain and drought, and every flower
do not come to us by chance
but from God’s paternal hands.
He’s the Lord of earth and heaven
from whom every gift is given.
4.We’ll be patient in our suffering,
when we face adversity
with full trust about the future,
thankful in prosperity.
We will always know the love
of our faithful God above.
In his hand is all creation
subject to his good direction.
