Only believe in the promise,
Freely He’ll take all your sins away;
Only believe in the promise.

Only believe, Only believe,
Only believe in the promise;
Hear His sweet voice, the blessing receive
Only believe in the promise.

2 Jesus will give you the victor’s pow’r;
Only believe in the promise,
Looking to Him for your strength each hour,
Only believe in the promise. [Refrain]

3 Draw from the treasures of boundless grace;
Only believe in the promise,
Walk in the light of the Savior’s face,
Only believe in the promise. [Refrain]

4 Comfort and peace thro’ redeeming love;
Only believe in the promise,
Foretastes of wonderful joy above,
Only believe in the promise. [Refrain]
