1. I believe in God
who made heaven and earth.
I believe in one Lord,
Jesus Christ, his only Son.
God from God, and Light from Light,
the one true God above,
with the Father He is one
creator of all things.
Oh I believe in God Almighty
who made heaven and earth. (Twice).
2. For us all he came to
and lived as one of us.
For our sake he suffered death.
They knailed him to a cross.
But ho earthly grave could hold
the Lord of heaven and earth;
bursting forth he rose again,
just as the prophets said.
3. Forty days he walked on
a dead man come alive,
Then he bids his friends farewell,
returning to his heaven.
He will come again to judge
the living and the dead.
He is Lord of all the worlds;
his kingdom has no end.
4. I believe in God the
Spirit and the Son,
I believe the Church is holy, universal, one.
And through water all our guilt
is cleansed we are made new.
Dying we will rise again to live for ever more.
Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, Kyrie Eleison

FINAL COMMENDATION AND FAREWELL
In paradisum ....deducant te
in tuo adventususcipiant te Martyres,
et perducant te in civitatem sanctain Jerusalem.
Chorus Angelorum tessuscipiat, et cum Lazaro
quondam paupere aeternam habeas requiem.
Abide with me.
fast falls the eventide;
the darkness deepens,
Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail,
and comforts flee,
help of the helpless,
O abide with me.
2. Swift to its close
ebbs out lif's little day;
earths joys grow dim,
its glories pass away;
change and decay
in all around I see;
O thou who changest not
abide with me.
