When in Jesus we believe,
And His pardon we receive,
What a comfort to the soul
The promise brings;
That the weary and oppressed,
When they come to Him for rest,
He will cover with the shadow
Of His wings.

Refrain

O sing the greatness of His mercy,
Unto those that seek Him ever full and free;
O sing, while angels join the chorus,
Rolling onward like the sea.

When in Jesus we abide,
And by faith are justified,
We have peace with God the Father
Through His name;
And the joy that fills the heart,
Though its earthly hopes depart,
Through His all atoning merit
We may claim.

Refrain

When in Jesus we are one
We can say, His will be done,
We can trust Him where perhaps
We cannot trace;
For he keeps us by His power,
Every moment, every hour,
And we feel the sweet refreshing
Of His grace.

Refrain

Oh, the whispers of His love,
How they cheer us from above,
While they tell of yonder mansions
Bright and fair;
Where, beyond the swelling tide,
We shall anchor at His side,
And be gathered with the saints
In glory there.

Refrain
