Representative Text

1 My dear, loving Savior, who died on the tree,
To prove all His tender compassion for me;
I know Thee, believe Thee, yes, Thee I adore,
My Lord and my Savior, I'll doubt Thee no more.

I'll doubt Thee, my Savior, no more;
I'll doubt Thee, my Savior, no more;
I know Thee, I love Thee, yes, Thee I adore,
Oh, help me, my Savior, to doubt Thee no more.

2 Oh, why should I ever have doubted my Lord?
Oh, had I but trusted His life-giving word;
My sorrow and sadness had all passed away,
My grief turned to gladness, my darkness to day. [Chorus]

3 I'll cast all my doubting forever away,
And heed my blest Savior, oh, help me, I pray;
For soon we shall see Him, and like Him shall be,
When darkness and doubting forever shall flee. [Chorus]

4 His word He has given a lamp to our way,
To lead us to heaven, and glorious day;
It tells us our duty while pilgrims below,
And speaks of that kingdom where pilgrims shall go. [Chorus]
