The Lyrics

I thought faith was only for the sad and weak.
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Evil all around me
that's the way it seemed.
I would always fail in my own schemes.

Then I felt His Grace,
now I'm a believer.
Not a trace
of doubt in my mind.
I've been saved;
O-o, I'm a believer!
Couldn't be surer if I tried.

Now I know Salvation is a given thing.
With Christ’s Blood my future has been bought.
Now I’m living for Him.
He bore all the pain.
I’ll get into Heaven ‘cause of Him.

Yes I felt His Grace,
now I'm a believer.
Not a trace
of doubt in my mind.
I've been saved;
O, Yes, I'm a believer!
Couldn't be surer if I tried.

[Musical Interlude]

O, evil was upon me
That's the way it seemed.
I would always fail in my own schemes.

Then I felt His Grace,
Backup Singers: (Then-I-felt-His-Grace)
now I'm a believer
(I’m-a-be-lie-ver)
Not a trace
(not-one-lit-tle-trace)
of doubt in my mind.
(no-doubt-in-my-mind)
I've been saved;
O, yes, I'm a believer!
Couldn't be surer if I tried.

Yes I felt His Gra-aaaace,
now I'm a believer
Not a tra-aaaace
of doubt in my mind.

O, I’m a believer yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
(I’m a believer)
(I’m—a—be—lie—ver.)

Hallejuah. What would Neil Diamond think of this? (too much of the OS for me to rank straight 5s)
Ann Hammond - June 29, 2007 - Report this comment
A little too much OS
John Jenkins - June 29, 2007 - Report this comment
Agrimorfee and Ms. Hammond are probably correct, but this contains a very uplifting message nonetheless.

Pretty good. (I wouldn't know about the "too much OS" deal, 'cause I've never really heard the OS.)

I wrote my own Christian parody of it: I thought God was Only there for good people Meant for someone else But not for me God was out to get me That’s the way it seems What I wanted Wasn’t only in dreams And then I sought His face Now I’m a believer Not a trace Of doubt in my mind Now I run this race Left sin in the dust behind I’ve been loved I’m a receiver Of God’s love divine I thought His love Less than it really was The more I saw the more I was overwhelmed What’s the use in trying To measure the domain Of His love benign It was plain He had seen my pain When I was a griever When I couldn’t face The guilt in my mind He came with love Now I’m a believer He wouldn’t leave me He is right beside There is use in complying With God’s will ain’t vain When I got my way I only got pain And so I sought His face Now I’m an achiever Through God’s grace No longer confined I’ve been loved Surely I’m a receiver Of His love divine And now I seek God’s face I’m a believer I still face Trials and storms unkind I’m a believer Yes, a receiver Of his wondrous love I seek His face I’m a believer I run this race Left sin behind I’m a believer

Nice lyrics, but they just don't quite fit the metre.

I saw this funny version on a music video with a man and a chimp wearing wigs and they used this song in the movie Shreck
