1. Have you on the Lord believed?
Still there’s more to follow.
Of His grace have you received?
Still there’s more to follow.
Oh, the grace the Father shows!
Still there’s more to follow.
Freely He His grace bestows,
Still there’s more to follow.

Refrain
More and more, more and more,
Always more to follow,
Oh, his matchless, boundless love!
Still there’s more to follow.

2. Have you felt the Savior near?
Still there’s more to follow.
Does His blessèd presence cheer?
Still there’s more to follow.
Oh the love that Jesus shows;
Still there’s more to follow.
Freely He His love bestows,
Still there’s more to follow. [Refrain]

3. Have you felt the Spirit’s power?
Still there’s more to follow.
Falling like the gentle shower?
Still there’s more to follow.
Oh, the power the Spirit shows,
Still there’s more to follow.
Freely He His power bestows,
Still there’s more to follow. [Refrain]

Notes

Have you on the Lord believed? Fullness of Grace. This hymn arose out of the following circumstances:—"A vast fortune was left in the hands of a minister for one of his poor parishioners. Fearing that it might be squandered if suddenly bestowed upon him, the wise minister sent him a little at a time, with a note saying, “This is thine; use it wisely; there is more to follow.” Hence also the refrain ‘More to follow,’ by which the hymn is known." -John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
