159. Verily Verily

1 Oh, what a Savior, that He died for me!
From condemnation He hath made me free;
"He that believeth on the Son," saith He,
"Hath everlasting life."

"Verily, verily, I say unto you,"
Verily, verily," message ever new;
"He that believeth on the Son," 'tis true,
"Hath everlasting life."

2 All my iniquities on Him were laid,
All my indebtedness by Him was paid;
All who believe on Him, the Lord hath said,
"Hath everlasting life." [Chorus]

3 Though poor and needy I can trust my Lord,
Though weak and sinful I believe His Word;
Oh, glad message! ev'ry child of God
"Hath everlasting life." [Chorus]

4 Though all unworthy, yet I will not doubt,
For him that cometh, He will not cast out;
"He that believeth," oh, the good news shout,
"Hath everlasting life." [Chorus]
