Sunday of the Holy Trinity, Part IV

Athanasian Creed, Part IV

The Father is made of none,
neither created nor begotten.

The Son is of the Father alone;
not made nor created, but begotten.

The Holy Spirit is of the Father
and of the Son;
neither made,
nor created,
nor begotten,
but proceeding.

So there is one Father,
not three Fathers;
one Son,
not three Sons;
one Holy Spirit,
not three Holy Spirits.

And in this Trinity none is
before or after another;
none is greater or less than another.

But the whole three persons
are coeternal, and coequal.

So that in all things, as aforesaid,
the Unity in Trinity
and the Trinity in Unity
is to be worshipped.

He therefore that will be saved
must thus think of the Trinity.

This is in Hong Kong, sung in the local dialect.
