Then, only the 1st Cantor's side ei. the Quire completes the verse:

And then, only the 2nd Cantor's side ei. the Quire chants the entire next verse (omitting the intonation notes), the two sides alternating the verses there, after:

Which Faith except ev'ry one do -keep whole and i un-de-Iil-ed, * without

doubt he shall perish T ev-~r-Ias-ting-IY. , ,

.... And CaJh~lic Faith is this: t "That we worship One i God in Trin-it-y, * and

Trinit- i y in U-nit-y; . _

"Neither con- t foiin-din'g the Per-sons, * nor div- T i-ding the Sub-stance.

"For there is One Person of the Father, An- t oth-er of the Son, * and Another ( T of the Ho-ly Ghost. ' , ',I A "But the God-Head of the Father, of the Son, and of the Ho-ly t Ghost is All '/ One; * the Glory Equal, the Mjljes- T ty Co,:",E-ter-nal.

.~'Such as the Fath-er T is, Such Isthe Son, * and i Such is the Ho-ly Q,host. I "The Father Uncreate, t the SonUn-cre-ate, *' and the T Ho-ly Ghost Un-cre-ate. "The ~ather Incomprehensible, the Son In- i com-pre-hen-sib-le, * and the

Holy Ghost i In-com-pre-hen-sib-le.

"The Father Eternal, the T Son E-ter-nal, * and the Holy t Ghost E-ter-nal.

"As also there are not _three lncomprehensibles, nor t three un-cre-a-ted, * but

One Incomprehensible, and t One Un-cre-a-ted. , .,

"So likewise the Father is Almighty, the} SonAAi-migh-ij', *_and the Hply i Ghost Ai-migh-tY. "As yet there are not T three al-migh-ties, * but i One Al-migh-ty.

"So the Father is t God, the Son is God, * and, the T Ho-ly Ghost is God.

"As yet they t..are not three gods, * T (_') but One God." "So likewise the Father is i Lord, the Son is Lord, * and the j Ho-ly Ghost is Lord. ~ "As yet there .T are not three lords, * T (_,) but One Lord.

"For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge Ev'ry Person by Him- i self to be God and Lord, * so are we forbidden lIy Cath'lic religion to say, 'There be T three gods, or three lords.'

"The i Fath-er is Made of nope; * neither Created j nor Be-got-ten.

"The Son is of the i Fath-er A-lone; * not Made, nor Created, i but Be-got-ten. "The Ho-Iy Ghost is T Of the Fath-er; * neither Made, -nor Created, nor

Begotten, T but Pro-ceed-ing. _

"So there is One Father, not three fath-ers; t j, One Son, not three sons; * One Holy T Ghost, not three ho-ly ghosts.

"And in This Trinity None is afore, or after oth-er; t None is Greater, or, T Less than An-oth-er; * but the Whole Three Persons are Co-Eternal together, rand Co-E-qual.

"So that in_all things, as iSA a-fore-said, t the Unit- T y in Trin-it-y, * and the

Trinity in Unity t is to be Wor-shipp'd. _,

"He therefore that T woiild be sa-ved * must thus l' think of the Trin-it-y." Furthermore, it is necessary to ever- T las_;ting sal-va-tion * that he also believe rightly the Incarnation of i Our Lord Je-sus Christ.

For the Orthodox Faith is this: "That we believe and con-fess t that Our Lord Jesus i Christ, the Son of God, * T (_,) is God and Man;

"God, of the Substance of the Fath-eryBe- i got-ten be-fore the worlds; * and

Man, of the substance of His i Moth-er, Born in the world; , A

"Perfect i GOd and Per-fect Man; * of a Reasonable Soul and Human l' Flesh Sub-sis-ting; "Equal to the Father as T Touch-ing His God-head; * and Inferior to the

Father, as i Touch-ing His Man-hood. ., A

"Who, although i He be God and Man, * ye,t He is T not Two, but One Christ; "One; ,not by conversion of the i God-head in-to Flesh, * but by Taking of the t Man-hood in-to God;

"One altogether; not by con- l' fu-sion of Sub-stance, * but by U-nit- T y of Per-son.
