Hymn to the Holy Trinity

Hymn to the Holy Trinity (“We All Believe in One True God”) is an abbreviated paraphrase of the Apostles Creed by Tobias Clausnitzer (1619-1684), a German Lutheran pastor and writer of theological treatises, sermons, and hymns. It was designated as a hymn for Trinity Sunday in the Culmbach-Bayreuth Gesang-Buch (1668).

Translated from Clausnitzer’s “Wir glauben all an einen Gott, Yater, Sohn und heilgen Geist” by the English hymn-writer and educator Catherine Winkworth, “We All Believe in One True God” was included in Winkworth’s Lyra Germanica — Hymns for the Sundays and Chief Festivals of the Christian Year, translated from the German (1858), and repeated in her Chorale Book for England (1863).

This new musical setting, mostly in unison and briefly expanding to three-part harmony at the peak of each verse, is very singable by small and developing choirs composed of soprano, alto, and baritone/bass voices. The accompaniment, with sustained tones, is best realized on organ.
