We Believe (in God the Father, maker of the universe) - Kendrick

We Believes on an image of the starry sky, with child and tree and fence:   We believe in God the Father, Maker of the universe, And in Christ His Son our Saviour, Come to us by virgin birth. We believe He died to save us, Bore our sins, was crucified. Then from death He rose victorious, Ascended to the Father's side. Chorus:  Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all, Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all, Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all, Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all. Name above all names, Name above all names. Name above all names. 2  We believe He sends His Spirit, On His church with gifts of power. God His word of truth affirming, Sends us to the nations now. He will come again in glory,Judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow before Him, Then must every tongue confess.
This hymn of belief written by English evangelical worship leader and song-writer Graham Kendrick (b 1950), inspired by Isaiah 7:14 and with more than a nodding reference to the Apostle's Creed.

Kendrick first recorded it in 1986 for the first March For Jesus and releases on his album "Make Way for The King of Kings - A Carnival of Praise", released by Thankyou Music.

Books it has been published in include Worship Songs for Organ edited by Simon Lesley and published by Kevin Mayhew Ltd.   Sheet music just for the song is available from MusicNotes - link below.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Kendrick. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of F#m, the first few notes are F EF E F G A G, with accompanying chords F#m / E / F#m / E / Esus / E.
