Lyrics

How do I know my sins forgiv’n?
My Savior tells me so;
That now I am an heir of Heav’n?
My Savior tells me so.

Refrain

Away with doubt, away with fear,
When this by faith I know;
God’s word shall stand forevermore,
My Savior tells me so.

By trusting Christ the witness came,
My Savior tells me so;
The pardon’s free in Jesus’ name,
My Savior tells me so.

Refrain

Believe and thou shalt surely live,
My Savior tells me so;
The Spirit’s witness God will give,
My Savior tells me so.

Refrain

Though rough the way, I shall endure,
My Savior tells me so;
His sheep are ever kept secure,
My Savior tells me so.

Refrain

How do I know I’ll live again?
My Savior tells me so;
With Christ in glory I shall reign,
My Savior tells me so.
