Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I believed in God’s wonderful mercy and grace;
Believed in the smile of His reconciled face;
Believed in His message of pardon and peace:
I believed, and I keep on believing!

Believe! And the “feeling” may come or may go;
Believe in the Word that was written to show
That all who believe, their salvation may know;
Believe, and keep right on believing!

2 I believed in the work of my crucified Lord;
Believed in redemption alone thro’ His blood;
Believed in my Saviour by trusting His Word:
I believed, and I keep on believing! [Refrain]

3 I believed in the heart that was opened for me;
Believed in the love flowing blessed and free;
Believed that my sins were all nailed to the tree:
I believed, and I keep on believing! [Refrain]

4 I believed in Himself, as the true Living One;
Believed in His presence on high on the throne;
Believed in His coming in glory full soon;
I believed, and I keep on believing! [Refrain]
