Hillsong Worship have written and are about to release a brand new song, based on the Apostles’ Creed. It’s called “This I Believe”. Written by Ben Fielding and Matt Crocker, this song is based on an age-old statement of belief for the Christian church universal.

John Dixon (Centre for Public Christianity), got the ball rolling on this song with a  tweet:

Dear , could your brilliant songwriters please put the Apostles’ Creed to inspiring music. Do world-Christianity a massive favour.

As the album hasn’t been released just yet (it comes out on 1st July 2014 on Hillsong Worship’s “No Other Name” album), lyrics are hard to come by. If you are interested, here are the lyrics to this song. You can hear an acoustic rendition of this song by Ben Fielding in the Open House podcast (it’s right at the end of the podcast).

Full Lyrics: This I Believe by Hillsong Worship

Our Father, everlasting
The all creating One
God Almighty

Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Saviour

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

Our judge and our defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You

Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious light
Forever seated high

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God it three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

Yes, I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord

I believe in Life Eternal
I believe virgin birth
I believe in the saints’ communion
And in Your holy church
I believe in the resurrection
When Jesus comes again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God it three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus
For I believe in the name of Jesus
For I believe in the name of Jesus
