Father in Heaven, We Do Believe


Father in Heaven, We Do Believe

With conviction

1. Father in Heav’n, we do believe

The promise thou hast made;

Thy word with meekness we receive,

Just as thy Saints have said.

2. We now repent of all our sin

And come with broken heart,

And to thy covenant enter in

And choose the better part.

3. O Lord, accept us while we pray,

And all our sins forgive;

New life impart to us this day,

And bid the sinners live.

4. Humbly we take the sacrament

In Jesus’ blessed name;

Let us receive thru covenant

The Spirit’s heav’nly flame.

5. We will be buried in the stream

In Jesus’ blessed name,

And rise, while light shall on us beam

The Spirit’s heav’nly flame.

6. Baptize us with the Holy Ghost

And seal us as thine own,

That we may join the ransomed host

And with the Saints be one.

For sacrament, sing verses 1–4.
For baptismal services, omit verse 4.
