#214: Verily, Verily

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


O what a Savior that He died for me!

From condemnation He hath made me free;

“He that believeth on the Son”, saith He,

“Hath everlasting life.”


“Verily, verily, I say unto you —

Verily verily,” message ever new;

“He that believeth on the Son”, ’tis true,

Hath everlasting life.”


All my iniquities on Him were laid,

All my indebtedness by Him was paid;

All who believe on Him, the Lord hath said,

Have everlasting life.



Tho poor and needy, I can trust my Lord,

Tho weak and sinful I believe His ord;

O glad message! ev’ry child of God

“Hath everlasting life.”



Tho all unworthy, yet I will not doubt,

For him that cometh He ill not cast out;

“He that believeth”, O the good news shout,

“Hath everlasting life!”
