WE BELIEVE IN OUR GOD 1. We believe in our God, the Prince of his race, The archangel Michael, the Ancient of Days Our own Father Adam, earth's Lord as is plain, Who'll counsel and fight for His children again. 2. We believe in His Son, Jesus Christ who in love To His brothers and sisters came down from above, To die, to redeem them from death, and to teach To mortals and spirits the gospel we preach. MICHAEL IS THE ETERNAL FATHER Sons of Michael, he approaches! Rise, the ancient father greet. Bow, ye thousands, low before him; Minister before his feet. Hail the patriarch’s glad reign, Spreading over sea and main. Sons of Michael, ’tis his chariot Rolls its burning wheels along! Raise aloft your voices million In a torrent pow’r of song. Hail our head with music soft! Raise sweet melodies aloft! Mother of our generations, Glorious by great Michael’s side, Take thy children’s adoration; Endless with they seed abide. Lo! to greet thee now advance Thousands in the glorious dance! Raise a chorus, sons of Michael, Like old ocean’s roaring swell, Till the mighty acclamation Thru rebounding space doth tell That the ancient one doth reign In his Father’s house again!
