O BE joyful in the Lord,

Lord with gladness, and come
before his presence with a
Be ye sure that the Lord
he is God, it is he that hath
made us, and not we our-

tles' Creed by the Minister and the People, standing land for our salvation, came

...And any Churches may omut the words, He descended into Hell, or may, instead of them, use the words, He went into the place of departed Spirits, which are considered as words of the same meaning, in the Creed BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth : And in Jesus Christ his only Son our lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into Hell; The third day he rose from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost: The Holy Catholic Church; The communion of Saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting. Amen. * Or this. BELIEVE in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Farth, and of all things visible and invisible: And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds; God of God. Iiglrt of Jight, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men,

down from Heaven, and was
incarnate by the Holy Ghost
of the Virgin Mary, and was
made man, and was crucified
also for us under Pontius Pi-
late. He suffered and was
buried, and the third day he
rose again, according to the
Scriptures, and ascended into
Heaven, and sitteth on the
right hand of the Father, and
he shall come again, with glo-
ry, to judge both the quick
and the dead; whose king-
dom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy
Ghost, the Lord and giver of
life, who proceedeth from the
Father and the Son; who with
the Father and the Son toge-
ther is worshipped and glori-
fied, who spake by the pro-
phets. And I believe one Ca-
tholic and Apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one Baptism
for the remission of sins; and
I look for the resurrection of
the dead, and the life of the
world to come. Mmen.
