For SATB


Uploaded on Mar 12, 2019

This is the ninth (of a projected ten hymns) based on the Heidelberg's elaboration on the Apostles' Creed. The song is about articles 9 and 10, which are: I believe a holy catholic Christian church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins. Questions and answers 54-56 expand on this:

54. Q. What do you believe
concerning the holy catholic Christian church?
A. I believe that the Son of God, 1
out of the whole human race, 2
from the beginning of the world to its end, 3
gathers, defends, and preserves for himself, 4
by his Spirit and Word, 5
in the unity of the true faith, 6
a church chosen to everlasting life. 7
And I believe that I am 8
and forever shall remain
a living member of it. 9

because of Christ's satisfaction,
will no more remember
my sins, 1

all my life, 2
but will graciously grant me
the righteousness of Christ,
that I may never come into condemnation. 3
