Whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.@John 5:24

If you ask me why I’m happy
As I journey down life’s road,
Why it is I do not carry
On the way a heavy load;
’Tis because my Savior tells me
That my burden He’ll receive.
And I believe it, every word I believe.

Refrain

I believe it, every word I believe,
I receive it, every word I receive;
Jesus tells me my wants He will relieve,
And I believe it, every word I believe.

We are not allowed to wander
Thro’ this world without a guide,
For, to keep our feet from straying,
His own Word has been applied;
And we read here that the sentence
Of a sinner He’ll reprieve,
And I believe it, every word I believe.

Refrain

He informs us for our comfort
That thro’ life He’ll be our friend,
That if we will only trust Him,
He’ll go with us to the end,
That His Spirit will be with us
While we do not slight nor grieve,
And I believe it, every word I believe.

Refrain

He has told us of a city
Where the streets are paved with gold,
Where the faithful shall be gathered
And their Savior’s face behold;
He has promised at its portals
That our souls He will receive,
And I believe it, every word I believe.

Refrain
