Words: John Wesley and Charles Wesley
Music: "Melita" by John B. Dykes

Alternate tune: "Pater Omnium" by Henry J.E. Holmes


Surrounded by a host of foes,
Stormed by a host of foes within,
Nor swift to flee, nor strong t'oppose,
Single, against hell, earth, and sin,
Single, yet undismayed, I am;
I dare believe in Jesus' Name.

What though a thousand hosts engage,
A thousand worlds, my soul to shake?
I have a shield shall quell their rage,
And drive the alien armies back;
Portrayed it bears a bleeding Lamb
I dare believe in Jesus' Name.

Me to retrieve from Satan's hands,
Me from this evil world to free,
To purge my sins, and loose my bands,
And save from all iniquity,
My Lord and God from Heav'n He came;
I dare believe in Jesus' Name.

Salvation in His Name there is,
Salvation from sin, death, and hell,
Salvation into glorious bliss,
How great salvation, who can tell!
But all He hath for mine I claim;
I dare believe in Jesus' Name.
