Minister: Christian, what do you believe?
Congregation: Therefore, following the holy fathers, we all with one accord teach men to acknowledge one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, at once complete in Godhead and complete in manhood, truly God and truly man, consisting also of a reasonable soul and body; of one substance with the Father as regards his Godhead, and at the same time of one substance with us regards his manhood; like us in all respects, apart from sin; as regards his Godhead, begotten of the Father before the ages, but yet as regards his manhood begotten, for us men and for our salvation, of Mary the virgin, the God-bearer; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, recognized in two natures, without confusion, without change, without division, without separation; the distinction of natures being in no way annulled by the inion, but rather the characteristics of each nature being preserved and coming together to form one person and subsistence, not as parted or separated into two persons, but one and the same Son and Only-begotten God the Word, Lord Jesus Christ; even as the prophets from earliest times spoke of him, as our Lord Jesus Christ himself taught us, and the creed of the fathers has handed down to us.
Minister: Hear my prayer, O Lord,
Congregation: And let my cry come unto You.
Minister: Hide not Your face from me
Congregation: In the day when I am in trouble;
Minister: The heavens are the work of Your hands
Congregation: They shall perish, but You shall endure;
Minister: The children of Your servants shall continue,
Congregation: And their seed shall be established before You.
