One of my favorite songs by Rich Mullins is "Creed".

The song is based on the Apostles' Creed, which is very similar to the Nicene Creed. From what I can tell, they are theologically very similar, if not identical. The differences seem to be more linguistic and grammatical.

The Creed says:

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.

Enjoy the song:
