V. Raymond Edman, But God!, (Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids; 1962), p. 65
I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me -
"I believe"&md;but, do I? Am I sure? "I believe"&md;ay, do I! I believe - Annie Johnson Flint
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?
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&md;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"&md;ay, do I! I believe - Annie Johnson Flint
