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.

Refrain

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.

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

Refrain

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

Refrain

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.

Refrain
