    I Believe in Christ

    Fervently

    1. I believe in Christ; he is my King!

    With all my heart to him I’ll sing;

    I’ll raise my voice in praise and joy,

    In grand amens my tongue employ.

    I believe in Christ; he is God’s Son.

    On earth to dwell his soul did come.

    He healed the sick; the dead he raised.

    Good works were his; his name be praised.

    2. I believe in Christ; oh blessed name!

    As Mary’s Son he came to reign

    ’Mid mortal men, his earthly kin,

    To save them from the woes of sin.

    I believe in Christ, who marked the path,

    Who did gain all his Father hath,

    Who said to men: “Come, follow me,

    That ye, my friends, with God may be.”

    3. I believe in Christ—my Lord, my God!

    My feet he plants on gospel sod.

    I’ll worship him with all my might;

    He is the source of truth and light.

    I believe in Christ; he ransoms me.

    From Satan’s grasp he sets me free,

    And I shall live with joy and love

    In his eternal courts above.

    4. I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!

    From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;

    And while I strive through grief and pain,

    His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”

    I believe in Christ; so come what may,

    With him I’ll stand in that great day

    When on this earth he comes again

    To rule among the sons of men.
