Lyrics

I believe, and now accept Him,
As my own, my Savior true;
He alone can give salvation,
And the heart create anew.

Refrain

I believe, His blood has cleansed me,
From the stain of blighting sin,
I believe none else could save me,
Fully cleanse my soul within.

I believe in Christ, my Savior,
For His blood has ransomed me;
Thro’ His grace I’m now rejoicing
In the peace of liberty.

Refrain

I believe no more in darkness,
Shall I grope along life’s way?
Jesus’ hand will safely guide me,
Nothing shall my soul dismay.

Refrain

I believe in yonder country,
Where we’re told no night will come;
We shall meet those gone before us,
With them share a changeless home.
