Beckett: Poetry – No. 1666, First Article of the Creed

“I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.”
God created all creatures, —
things living and inanimate.

God has given me body and soul;
thus, I belong to Him.
I do not own my body and soul,
for they were given to me as a gift.

God has given me my reason
and all the senses I have.
Everything I possess comes from Him, —
health, food, clothing, family.

God provides my daily needs, —
He gives every necessity
to live this life on earth,
for all things belong to Him.
