Believe, and Keep On Believing, #21

Lyrics

Verse 1
I believed in God’s wonderful mercy and grace,
Believed in the smile of His reconciled face,
Believed in His message of pardon and peace;
I believed, and I keep on believing.

Chorus
Believe! and the feeling may come or may go,
Believe in the word, that was written to show
That all who believe, their salvation may know;
Believe, and keep right on believing.

Verse 2
I believed in the work of my crucified Lord,
Believed in redemption alone thro’ His blood,
Believed in my Saviour by trusting His word;
I believed, and I keep on believing.

Verse 3
I believed in the heart that was opened for me,
Believed in the love flowing blessed and free,
Believed that my sins were all nailed to the tree;
I believed, and I keep on believing.

Verse 4
I believed in Himself, as the true Living One,
Believed in His presence on high on the throne,
Believed in His coming in glory full soon;
I believed, and I keep on believing.
