Begone Unbelief

John Newton and Kevin Twit

Verse 1
Begone, unbelief, my Savior is near
And for my relief will surely appear;
By prayer let me wrestle, and He will perform;
With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm
With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm

Verse 2

Though dark be my way, since He is my Guide,
‘Tis mine to obey, ’tis His to provide;
Though cisterns be broken, and creatures all fail,
The Word He hath spoken shall surely prevail.
The Word He hath spoken shall surely prevail.

Chorus
[Men]————————-[Ladies]
Begone unbelief,———-the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;

[Altogether]
Though cisterns be broken and creatures all fail,
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail;
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail.

Verse 3
His love in time past forbids me to think
He’ll leave me at last in trouble to sink:
Each sweet Ebenezer I have in review
Confirms His good pleasure to help me quite through.
Confirms His good pleasure to help me quite through.

Verse 4

Why should I complain of want or distress,
Temptation or pain? He told me no less;
The heirs of salvation, I know from His Word
Through much tribulation must follow their Lord.
Through much tribulation must follow their Lord.

Chorus
[Men]————————-[Ladies]
Begone unbelief,———-the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;

[Altogether]
Though cisterns be broken and creatures all fail,
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail;
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail.

Verse 5
How bitter that cup no heart can conceive,
Which He drank quite up, that sinners might live!
His way was much rougher and darker than mine;
Did Christ, my Lord, suffer and shall I repine?
Did Christ, my Lord, suffer and shall I repine?

Verse 6

Since all that I meet shall work for my good,
The bitter is sweet, the medicine,food;
Though painful at present, ’twill cease before long,
And then, oh, how pleasant the conqueror’s song!
And then, oh, how pleasant the conqueror’s song!

Chorus
[Men]————————-[Ladies]
Begone unbelief,———-the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;

[Altogether]
Though cisterns be broken and creatures all fail,
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail;
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail.

[Men]————————-[Ladies]
Begone unbelief,———-the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;
Begone unbelief,———the Savior is here;

[Altogether]
Though cisterns be broken and creatures all fail,
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail;
The Word He has spoken will surely prevail.
