I’m a believer in the goodness of God
I’m a believer in the truth of His word
I’m a believer in the worth of His law in my life

I’m a believer in a wonderful plan
Written in the heavens where my journey began
I’m a believer; I can see the Lord’s hand in my life

And I’ll shout it from the mountaintops
if words are all it takes
But the world is watching carefully
for all the things that words can’t say

Am I a witness of Christ?
Does His love shine in my eyes?
Does my life reflect the things that mean the most to me?
Does what I am speak for me and tell you what I believe?

I’m a believer in the work of the Lord
To bring us all together in His kingdom once more
I’m a believer: there is nothing more sure in my life

( Repeat Chorus )


  1. Casey Preston

    I’d like to be able to get this song for low female voice as I can not sing the chorus of this as it is too high for my voice.

  2. Paige

    Do you have a spanish translation for this song?

  3. Mikka

  4. Chrys Alam

    I’m about to begin working on this one with my organist to sing soon at chapel. I love your music! So do the pastor, congregation and organist. Thank you for making God’s Words so beautiful to sing, listen to, and learn from.

    i have been looking for this song for a long time. I heard it at Girls Camp and I could never find where it came from. I should have figured it came from you. All the music I love is from you. Thank you so much for providing all this for people. It really is a blessing. 🙂 Sally you make beautiful music.

  6. Merribeth
