What Is It To Be a Christian

Representative Text

1 Believe him, only trust him,
The Saviour crucified;
Believe that he will save you;
For you the Saviour died.

2 Obey him, for in mercy
His will he maketh known;
Obey him, quickly, gladly,
For love's dear sake alone.

3 Still follow where He leadeth,
For Jesus knows the way;
Oh, follow closer, closer,
And trust him day by day.
