Where the world comes to study the Bible

I Believe God

I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me - Acts 27:35.

“I believe”—but, do I? Am I sure'
Can I trust my trusting to endure'
Can I hope that my belief will last'
Will my hand forever hold Him fast'
Am I certain I am saved from sin'
Do I feel His presence here within'
Do I hear Him tell me that He cares'
Do I see the answers to my prayers'
Do no fears my confidence assail'
Do I know my faith will never fail'

“I believe”—ay, do I! I believe
He will never fail me, never leave;
I believe He holds me, and I know
His strong hand will never let me go;
Seeing, hearing, feeling—what are these'
Given or withheld as He shall please.
I believe in Him and what He saith;
I have faith in Him, not in my faith
That may fail, tomorrow or today;
Trust may weaken, feeling pass away,
Thoughts grow weary, anxious or depressed;
I believe in God—and here I rest.
