1 Lord, I come believing now, to Calvary,
Seeking in its fullness grace so rich and free;
Just a humble follow’r I would ever be;
Lord, I come believing Thou hast died for me.

Refrain:
Lord, I come believing,
Thou hast died for me,
I claim Thy promise mine,
Fill my soul with peace divine,
Lord, I come believing Thou hast died for me.

2 Lord, I come believing ev’ry promise true,
Righteous altogether; I have claimed but few;
Joy at noon or midnight they shall bring to me;
Lord, I come believing Thou hast died for me. [Refrain]

3 Hide me in the safety of Thy shelt’ring wing,
Fill my life with music, stir my heart to sing;
Teach me faith and patience, tho’ it hard may be;
Lord, I come believing Thou hast died for me. [Refrain]
