1 I believe that in the ages past,
Jesus died for you and me;
I believe He purchased on the cross,
Our redemption full and free.

I believe it all,
I believe it all;
I believe His pow’r will save this hour,
Yes, I believe it all.

2 I believe that God has pow’r today,
As in glorious days of old;
Send a mighty show’r upon us, Lord,
With Thy love our lives enfold. [Refrain]

3 I believe salvation full and free,
Is for all who will believe;
Send upon us Lord our Pentecost,
May we now Thy pow’r receive. [Refrain]
