Nicea!
I just had brilliant idea!
The bishops I'll invite
And maybe they will write
A creed.

Nicea!
A council I'll call at Nicea.
By means of politics
I'll make those heretics
Concede!

Nicea!
Different doctrines they've been promoting;
Now at last we can solve it by voting.
Nicea!
They'll never stop quoting Nicea!

Nicea!
The crown of my brilliant care-er
Because I'm Emperor,
They've all got to defer
To me!

Nicea!
I'll gather the whole ecclesia,
And suddenly they'll find
They all are of one mind.
You'll see!

Nicea!
I can hear theologians saying:
Let's all go, since the Emperor's paying!
Nicea!
For unity they will be praying . . .
Nicea!
