Lyrics

We, only we believe indeed,
Our faith by our obedience show,
Who follow, by His Spirit led,
And walk as Jesus walked below,
And in His ways continue still,
And all His words with joy fulfill.

Justly we call the Father ours,
The Son we really do possess,
And tasting the celestial powers
Go on in holy love and peace,
To meet our Lord from paradise,
To claim our mansions in the skies.
