Lyrics

Come, trembling soul, be not afraid,
On Jesus all thy sins were laid;
And He thy hopeless debt has paid,
Only believe, only believe.

Refrain

Believe, and He will pardon thee,
Believe, and you His love shall see;
Believe, and He’ll save you and me.
Only believe, only believe.

The Sufferer in the garden see,
The Lamb of God on Calvary,
And all that pain and death for thee,
Only believe, only believe.

Refrain

The crimson stream, thy Savior’s blood,
Has power to bring thee nigh to God,
Cleansed in its precious healing flood,
Only believe, only believe.

Refrain

In wondrous love He calls today;
Cast now thy guilty doubts away;
Free pardon take without delay;
Only believe, only believe.

Refrain

For Thee, O Christ, all things I leave;
To Thee, my Savior, now I cleave;
And I, as Thou dost me receive,
Only believe, only believe.
