Mary Alice wrote the Trinitarian Creed for a Guilford (VT) Community Church UCC service, and Peter added some SATB harmonies to it. It can be done a cappella or with piano. The lyrics are, simply, the Trinitarian Creed:
We believe in God, maker and re-maker of everything that is, in whom there is always more, and more to come; and by whose wonder, work, and will, even the dead find life. We believe in God. We believe in Jesus Christ, maker and re-maker of tables and tales, in whom the welcome is wide, and the feasting free; and by whose weeping, words, and wounds, even the lost are found. We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe in the Holy Spirit, maker and re-maker of imagination, whose eyes see over the horizon, beyond the end; and by whose urgency and fire, even the truth gets told. We believe in the Holy Spirit. Therefore we also believe that everything that lives can be reborn, all hidden things can come to light, all broken things can be remade, the empty larder can be filled, and promises gone stale and hard can taste like bread again. And we believe the old Story can be told again to thrill sad hearts like rediscovered love; that even lost and frightened lambs like us can be retrieved, restored to courage, and declare the Truth that makes the tyrants tumble and the captives free.
