Hymn # 769 “If You But Trust in God to Guide You”

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried; 

He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. 

He ascended into heaven, 

He is seated at the right hand of the Father, 

And he will come to judge the living and the dead.

the holy catholic Church,

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. Amen
