Only one God exists. There are not many gods. The one true God created the entire universe. He himself is not created, but he created all things. All other things that are called gods are nothing but idols created by man. Human beings should not worship things they have created.

The Lord sits reigning on his glorious throne
Among four creatures, angels, and cherubim,
In splendor and might; above the heaven’s dome,

To heaven. He sowed in doubt, no eyes
To see a harvest. He read the pages
Of Scripture, clouded the God of ages.

The mute speak words, the poor find bread,
Despair embrace hope, the weak become strong —
And he was glad to be proved wrong.

For those in distress, for times of need;
The Lord protects the small and weak,
Who come for refuge, who knock and seek.

The Lord shows mercy — he hears the pleas
Of the poor, all human suffering sees,
He welcomes the humble, breaks the proud,
Gives hope to those whose necks are bowed.
