"This we believe"--based on the themes of the Belhar Confession--suggested tune: CRUCIFER, (Rejoice in the Lord #415)

Refrain:     This we believe: our God, the Three-in-One,

makes us the Church through Spirit and the Son.


Gathered, protected by eternal grace,

and joined as saints from every land and race:                 Refrain


We bring the world the liberating Word

that reconciles wherever it is heard.                                 Refrain


We must reveal lives giving, whole, and just

to faithful people trapped in broken trust.                         Refrain


We face earthís powers, stare down pain and death,

to bring Good News with all our strength and breath.       Refrain
