Representative Text

1 Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
And thou from thy sins shall be free;
He patiently stands at the door of thy heart;
O lost one, He’s waiting for thee.

Believe, believe,
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
And thou shalt be saved,
And thou shalt be saved.

2 Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
He tenderly calls thee today;
His arms are extended to welcome thee now;
Then why wilt thou grieve Him away? [Refrain]

3 Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
Accept of the love He has given;
O give Him thy service, thy talents, thy all,
And thou shalt have treasure in heaven. [Refrain]
