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.

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

2 Have you felt the Saviour near?
Still there’s more to follow;
Does his blessèd presence cheer?
Still there’s more to follow.

3 O the grace the Father shows!
Still there’s more to follow;
Freely he his grace bestows,
Still there’s more to follow.

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)
