We all believe in one true God,
Who created earth and heaven,
The Father, who to us in love
Has the right of children given.
He in soul and body feeds us;
All we need his hand provides us.
He through snares and perils leads us,
Watching that no harm betides us.
He cares for us by day and night;
All things are governed by his might.
The rhythm of the text does not exactly match the rhythm of the melody in that in speech "feeds us" and "provides us" would probably be notated as eighth notes through both phrases rather than ending with two quarters, but even so, this would be a great place to find our pulse. After speaking and finding my place, I pull out my metronome and figure out my pulse. (I use a free metronome app on my phone which lets me tap my pulse and then it shows me the tempo of my pulse. The app is called Pro Metronome.) My speech tempo for this piece is roughly 83 to the quarter note pulse.
