One of the most beautiful songs, let alone Christian songs I've ever heard
What makes the song so beautiful is Mullins' use of the hammer dulcimer, a wonderful stringed percussion instrument. The music comes out as both wonderfully delicate yet as powerful as any strong drum introduction to any '80s Hair Band metal hit.
Rich Mullins (1955-1997)
The lyrics as I stated, are based on the Apostle's Creed but the chorus is his and states a powerful concept that struck me as profound when I heard it a decade ago and still strikes me today:
And I believe what I believe
Is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of God and not
The invention of any man
"I did not make it, no it is making me." Isn't that how all of us should be as we travel through this world on our journey of faith?
I rate this mp3 track 5 stars out of 5. I can be found on Amazon.com here: Creed by Rich Mullins.
