Lord, now I see

Lord, now I see,
You only want me to believe;
Not to dwell
In all my failures and defeats;
To believe what You have done,
And not in what I see.
Lord I believe,
When all around me is defeat
And it seems that nothing's changing outwardly.
No! I'm not discouraged,
I'm believing You.
Yes, I believe,
And there is no demand on me.
Simple faith, yes, that is all You want from me.
Freed from anxious doubting—
I'm free to just believe!
Believing You,
Because, Lord, You are my success!
When I fail, all I must do is just confess,
And go on enjoying You—
I love believing You!

Our biggest defeats and failures are the Lord's biggest victories. He alone is our success.

Verse 1 third line originally should be

Not to "dwell"

Why are you changing this hymn?

This changes the meaning adversely

Los Angeles, California, United States

Lord, save me from dwelling in a place where there is no grace or supply...I'd like to believe in simple faith and enter into the realm of my mingled spirit! It is a releasing feeling of overwhelming peace when I learn to believe that everything in my life is something done by the union of God and man - not just what I see outwardly.

Serving Him is the profession that we can attain. Although most of the times we fail but still He is there for us and only by believing Him we can overcome. Lord, cause me to enjoy more of You. :)
