Lord, I believe: help Thou mine unbelief;
Let me no other master know but Thee.
Thou art the Christian’s God, the only King and Chief
Of all who soldiers of the cross would be.

Lord, I believe, in mercy grant me grace
To know Thee, blessèd Savior, more and more;
I can do naught without Thee; Jesus, show Thy face
Unto Thy servant who would Thee adore.

Lord, I believe the hold of sin is strong,
And stout its heart to pluck me from Thy love;
But stronger is Thy grace; oh, strengthen and prolong
The work of faith in me, my doubts remove.

Lord, I believe: help Thou mine unbelief;
Be this my prayer though good report and ill;
Only to Thee I cling; if long my day or brief,
Master and Savior, I will trust Thee still!
