Keep Us Steadfast and Pure in This Faith

downloadWe believe in God the Father,
God the Son,
and God the Holy Spirit.
God help us all
that we may be found
steadfast and pure
in this teaching and faith
until our life’s end.

Wir glauben an Gott Vater, Gott Sohn und Gott den heiligen Geist. Gott helfe uns allen, daß wir in solcher Lehre und Glauben bis an unser Ende beständig und rein erfunden werden. Amen.
