Credo

A Latin word which means “a set of fundamental beliefs or a guiding principle.”
— For a company, a credo is like a mission statement.

Credo

The Apostles’ Creed.
The Nicene Creed, especially as the third item of the Ordinary of the Roman Catholic Mass.
The musical setting of the Nicene Creed.


[Middle English, the Apostles’ Creed, from Latin crd, I believe
(the first word of the Apostles’ Creed or the Nicene Creed),
first person sing. present tense of crdere, to believe.
See kerd- in Indo-European Roots.]

 

Our Credo

	Do not dispraise the light
	That, singing whatever's brightest,
	Undoes the theft of night--
	In soul-enchanting soliloquies
	Enmansioning aerial ways
	That we might thrive there all our days
	In realms of spendless purity
	Absent nations' perfidy
	Heart to heart for sole surety;
	This our pledge, this our guarantee
	That all's well with humanity
	Once these bleak constants, fear and dread,
	Lay to light exposed, and dead,
	The human plant may only mend,
	Think to create, and speak to praise,
	Throughout the endless paradise of days
	--Touch to caress, or move to love,
	As this thoughtless rhyme does prove.
