Lyrics

From Calvary’s mountain sounding,
What loving words we hear,
The love of God abounding,
Dispelling all our fear.

Refrain

O brother, believe it!
O brother, receive it!
Whosoever believeth
Hath everlasting life!

Oh, seek this great salvation,
And cast out every sin,
The soul’s emancipation,
By power divine within.

Refrain

Whoe’er My Word believeth,
We hear the Savior say,
A pardon full receiveth,
All sins are washed away.

Refrain

O brother, come and trust Him,
Oh, come to Him today;
He’s waiting to receive you,
Why longer then delay?
