Songs of Brother Branham

ONLY BELIEVE

Only believe, only believe, All things are possible, only believe; Only believe... Look which way? To Jesus. Doctors has failed. Everything else has failed. "But this is My beloved Son. Hear ye Him." What did He say? He said, "Hear ye Him." What did He say? What did He say? Only believe. Why all things are possible. Fear not, little flock, From the cross to the throne, From death into life He went all alone; His... All power in earth, all power above, Is given to Him for the flock of His love. All power for sickness, everything, given to Him. On... (Hear ye Him. Only Believe.) Only believe, All things...

 

ONLY BELIEVE  It's been my theme song. It's been sang in many different languages in different parts of the world. It's called me to the platform for the past ten years, I guess. Only believe; all things are possible, if you can only believe. Now, have faith; have faith in God and believe with all your heart while we sing slowly now, altogether. Only believe, only believe,  All things are possible, only believe; Only believe, only believe,  All things are possible, only believe. I wonder if the audience would do this for me. Let's just close our eyes now, and raise up our hands, and say, "Now, I believe."  Now, I believe, now, I believe, All things are possible, now, I believe; Now, I believe, now, I believe,  All things are possible, now, I believe.

                THE LIFE BOAT SOON IS COMING

... ness  Will turn to brightest day,  Then let us all take courage, For we're not left alone; The lifeboat soon is coming  To gather the pilgrims home. Then cheer, my brother cheer, oh cheer,  Our trials shall soon be o'er,  Our loved ones we shall meet, shall meet, Upon the golden shore. We're pilgrim's and we're strangers here, We're seeking a city to come, The lifeboat soon is coming To gather the Jewels home. The lifeboat soon is coming, By eyes of faith I see, As she sweeps through the waters To rescue you and me. And land us safely in the port With friends we love so dear, "Get ready," cries the Captain, "Oh, look, she's almost here." (Watch the atomic bombs...?...) ... cheer, Our trials shall soon be o'er, Our loved ones we shall meet, shall meet, Upon the golden shore. We're pilgrims and we're strangers here, We're seeking a city to come, Our lifeboat soon is coming To gather the Jewels home.

            MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE

"My Faith Looks Up To Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary." And while we stand and sing it, let's shake hands with each other and say, "God bless you." My faith looks up to Thee, (God bless you...?... God bless you...?... God bless you, brother.) .. Divine; Now... Heavenly Father, bless...?... Amen.... wholly Thine! Now, let's raise our hands to Him. My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior Divine; Now hear me while I pray, Take all my guilt away, O let me from this day Be wholly Thine!

Till we meet!... Let's sing "Till We Meet Again." Everybody now join. Till we meet! till we meet! Till we meet at Jesus' feet; Till we meet! till we meet! God be with you till we meet again! Till we meet! till we meet! Till we meet at Jesus' feet; (till we meet!) Till we meet! till we meet! God be with you till we meet again! Let us bow our heads now.

WONDERFUL< WONDERFUL JESUS IS TO ME

Oh, wonderful, wonderful, Jesus is to me,  Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;  Saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,  Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!  Oh, wonderful, wonderful, Jesus is to me,  Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;  Oh, saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame, Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!  I once was lost, now I'm found, free from condemnation,  Jesus gives liberty and a full salvation;  Saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,  Oh, wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name! Oh, wonderful, wonderful, Jesus (Sing it, everyone now. Lift it up.)  Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He; Oh, saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,  Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!  Oh, wonderful, wonderful, (Raise up your hands when you... ) me,  Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;  Oh, saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,  Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!

NATIONS ARE BREAKING

(That's right?) Nations are breaking; Israel's awakening; The signs that our Bible foretold, And the Gentile days numbered, (Sodom.) With horrors encumbered; Return, O dispersed, to your own. The day of redemption is near, Man's hearts are failing in this fear. Be filled with God's Spirit, Have your lamps trimmed and clear. (So you can see the Word of the hour.) Look up, your redemption is near. False prophets are lying, (They said they'd be here: anointed ones.) God's Truth they're denying. That Jesus the Christ is our God. (That's... They don't believe it. The Bible said there'd be that thing here. Here it is.) But we'll walk where the apostles have trod. (Same Light... And restore the faith of the fathers to the children.) The day of redemption is near, (So near.) Man's hearts are failing for fear. (The earth's dropping in.) Oh, be filled with God's Spirit, Have your lamps trimmed and clear. Look up, your redemption is near. You believe that? Let us bow our heads then.

            IT SHALL BE LIGHT

It shall be Light about the evening time; The path to Glory you will surely find; In the water way is the Light today, Buried in the precious Name of Jesus. Young and old repent of all your sins; The Holy Ghost will surely enter in; The evening Lights have come; It is the facts that God in Christ are One.

FOOTPRINTS ON THE SANDS OF TIME

Twilight and evening star, And after that the dark! May there be no sadness of farewell, When I'm at last embarked; For all without is borne of time and space, And the floods may bear me far, But I want to see my Pilot face to face When I've crossed the bar. Tell me not, in mournful numbers, That life is just an empty dream! And the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Yea, life is real! And life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; For dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul. Lives of great men all remind us, And we can make our lives sublime, And, partings, leave behind us, Footprints on the sands of time; Footprints, that perhaps another, While sailing over life's solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, In seeing, shall take heart again. Let us be up, then, and doing, With a heart for any strife; Be not like dumb, driven cattle! Be a hero in the...

I LOVE HIM

Until we meet, let us stand and sing: I love Him, I love Him Because He first loved me, And purchased my salvation On Calvary's tree. Now, reverently shake hands with somebody in back of you, front of you, and at the side. I love Him, (everybody, now) I love Him Because He first loved me, And purchased my salvation On Calvary's tree. Now, with your hands up to God, real loud now, everybody make it ring. I love Him, I love Him Because He first loved me, And purchased m salvation On Calvary's tree. Let's bow our head now. Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus' feet; (Remember, many of us will never meet again till then.) Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again. Now, hum it.

EVERY PROMISE IN THE BOOK IS MINE

Every promise in the Book is mine,  Every chapter, every verse, every line.  I am trusting in His heart divine,  Every promise in the Book is mine. All you sick people now that's going to be prayed for, sing it with me.  Every promise in... (Raise your hand.) is mine,  Every chapter, every verse, every line. I am trusting in His Word divine, Every promise in the Book is mine. What do we have to do?  Only believe, only believe, (That's all you have to do.)  All things are possible, only believe.

THERE IS A FOUNTAIN FILLED WITH BLOOD

Let's just sing a little hymn now. This is worship. We had to cut just a little short, but this is a worship. Now, let's get real quiet and sing, "There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel's veins." Just worship as you sing it. Oh, I just love this song.  There is a fountain filled with blood, Drawn from Immanuel's veins,  And sinners plunged beneath that flood, Lose all their guilty stain.  Lose all their guilty stain, Lose all their guilty stain;  And sinners plunged beneath that flood, Lose all their guilty stain.

THE WINGS OF A SNOW WHITE DOVE

But I--I know I'm going to be over it. It's done. It's finished, and I'm going to be well. And I was thinking as Ernie sang that song a few moments ago, "On the Wings of a Dove." How is the melody to that? Start it for me, Ernie. ... wings... snow-white dove, (sing it with me) God sent down His pure, sweet love, Was a sign from above, On the wings of a dove. I understand Ernie made two verses of that. I'm going to make you three verses: Noah had drifted On the floods many days, He searched for land, In various ways; Troubles he had some, But not from above, For God gave him His sign On the wings of a dove. On the wings of a snow-white dove, God sends down His pure, sweet love, Was a sign from above, On the wings of a dove. Jesus, our Saviour Came to earth one day; He was born in a stable, In a manger of hay; Though here rejected, But not from above, For God gave us His sign On the wings of a dove. On the wings of a snow-white dove, God sends down His pure, sweet love, Oh, a sign from above, On the wings of a dove. Though I have suffered In many a way, I cried for healing Both night and day; But faith wasn't forgotten By the Father above, He gave me His sign On the wings of a dove. On the wings of a snow-white dove, God sends down His pure, sweet love, Oh, a sign from above, On the wings of a dove. On the wings of a snow-white dove, God sends down His pure, sweet love, A sign from above, On the wings of a dove.

 

  216    Dear God, I thank You for these things, Father. You give Noah the sign; You gave the world the sign, and You gave me a sign. And the next day, seeing that eagle flying, O God, there's a Message coming forth now, and I pray, God, that You'll let the Dove lead. Grant it, Lord. It's led me to a faith I never had before. I know, God; I know it's going to be all right; so I thank You for it, Father. And tonight, send down Your Message again, Lord, on the wings of the Dove of the Word. Grant it, dear heavenly Father. And every one that passes through this platform tonight, and out yonder in the meetings across the country, may Your great Dove of faith fall into their hearts and give them faith, Lord, for their healing. Remember that God is not a respect of person. He could send the Message to Noah, could send It to John the Baptist, could send It to me, can send It to others. I pray that that Dove will fly into every heart right now, Lord, with Its little, golden beak, and whisper that, "By His stripes... By all My wounds and stripes you are healed." God, grant that our transgressions will be blotted out, our iniquities will be forgiven us, and that our sickness will be healed. It's in Your hands, Father. In Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.

THEY COME FROM THE EAST AND WEST

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 64-0823E  1056-287    I like that song, "They Come From the East and West." How many knows it? I don't know as I know it, but I think I know a verse. You might pick it up, sister. I don't know whether you... Oh, they come from the East and West; They come from the land afar, To feast with our King, To dine as His guests, How blessed these pilgrims are. Oh, beholding His hallowed face, Aglow with love divine; Blest partakers of His grace, As gems in His crown to shine. Oh, Jesus is coming soon; Our trials will then be o'er. Oh, what if our Lord this moment should come For those who are free from sin. Oh, then would it bring you joy, Or sorrow and deep despair? When the Lord in Glory comes, We'll meet Him up in the air.

You've a long, long time, brother, it'll come back. And like bread upon the water will return to you someday. That's right. All right. Oh, you love Him? My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Oh, Saviou divine. Now hear me while I pray, Take all my sins away, Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside. While life's dark maze I tread, And griefs around me spread, Be Thou my Guide, Bid darkness turn to day, Wipe sorrow's fears away, Oh, let me from this day be wholly Thine. (Don't you love that?) My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Oh, Saviour divine. Now hear me while I pray, Take all my sin away; Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside. Blest be the tie that binds (Oh, my.) Our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred minds Is like to that above. Before our Father's throne We pour our ardent prayer; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts and our cares. But when we asunder part, It gives us inward pain; But we shall still be joined in heart, And hope to meet again. Sister Wilson, you remember about thirty-three or thirty-five years ago in a little house meeting we'd hold one another's hands? I knowed you remember that. Oh, let's just reach over now and take somebody by the hand. Blest be the tie that binds Our heart in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred mind Is like to that above. Before our Fathers' throne We pour our ardent prayer; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts and our cares. When we asunder part, It gives us inward pain; But we shall still be joined in heart, And hope to meet again. Do you love one another? Little children, love one another. Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus' feet; Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again.    You love Him? Isn't He wonderful? You love one another? Reach around, say something to one another. Say, "God bless you, brother. Bless you, sister." They're listening at us tonight across the river yonder, Sister Wilson. I can just see old Brother Seward walking the floor, clapping his hands. I seen our brother back there with the beard on his face raise up his hands, praising God; I thought of Brother Ryan, how he used to set right along there in the old tabernacle with his beard long like that. He's listening tonight across the portals of glory, a dear old saint. Isn't He wonderful? Take the Name of Jesus with you, Child of sorrow and of woe; It will joy and comfort give you, Oh, take it everywhere you go. Precious Name, O how sweet! Hope of earth and joy of Heaven, Precious Name, O how sweet! Hope of earth and joy of Heaven. Now, you take the Name of Jesus with you. (What for?) As a shield from every snare. (What happens?) When temptations 'round you gather, Breathe that holy name in prayer. Precious Name, (Precious Name) (O how sweet!) Hope of earth and joy of Heaven; Precious Name, O how sweet! Hope of earth and joy of Heaven.

 

I Surrender All

I surrender all,  All to Thee, my blessed Saviour,  I surrender all.   E-94    "I will give You all that I am, all that I've got, all my pride; everything I have, I surrender here at the altar to You. Just be merciful to me, dear God. I want my tears to wash away the stain. I want Your Blood to wash away my stain." What will do it? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus. Won't you come while we wait just a little longer 'cause I feel constrained. You know I'm not a fanatic. You know that. But I do feel that there's more people in here ought to be standing around this altar right now.   E-95    Backslider, what about you? You're away from God. If you die, you're lost. Come on. This is your time. Come in; there's room for you. Won't you come? We sing once more now, while we sing, "I Surrender All," will anyone else come at this time? All right.  I surrender all,  I surrender all,  All to Thee, my blessed Saviour,  I surrender all.  I surrender all.  I surrender all.  All to Thee, my blessed Saviour,  I surrender all.  I... (Will you do it?) [Brother Branham asks people to come to the altar while congregation sings--Ed.]...?... Come on...?... the blessing of Holy Spirit, come on.  All to Thee, My blessed Saviour,  I surrender all. Are you finished? You're sure? Is there some more here just now.

 

Let's sing "Just As I Am," sister; give us the chord there. "Just as I am," no matter what you've done.  Just as I am, without one plea, That Thy Blood was shed for me,  And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,  O Lamb of God, I come! I come! Let us stand while we sing that. Come on now right down the aisle. ... as I am, without one plea,  But that Thy blood... (Will you come right now?) Was shed... (Come right down to the altar...?... Come right on down. Oh, come.)  Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,  O Lamb of God, I come! I come!  Just as I am, and waiting not (Listen!)  To rid my soul... (How many?) of one dark blot,  To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come! I come! Slowly, now, sister. Let us bow our heads now as we hum this. [Brother Branham begins to hum--Ed.] Our heavenly Father, around this altar just now lines many sinners. They're bowing at the feet of the Lord Jesus. You said, "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him. And all that come, I'll give them Everlasting Life, and raise them up at the last days." You promised it, Lord. Many of them are standing here, just like that poor prostitute that stood at Your feet, doing a service to You, Lord. And then, You, turned and looked at her and said, "Thy sins, which were many, are all forgiven." You're no respect of person. You'll do the same for them, Lord. I pray that You'll grant it tonight.

 

Many more out there in the--off the altar, Lord, that should be here tonight giving their souls down here; they got away from God; they've got starchy and got indifferent. They just got formal and got away from You. They seen You this week come into the city, do signs and wonders and miracles to prove that You've raised from the dead. You're standing here tonight with outstretched arms. You're--You're tearing my heart to pieces, God, when I think of You. You're stand here, begging and pleading to the people.  O God, I don't know what's the matter with me tonight. But I pray, God, that ever who it is in here You're calling too, that they'll not go out of here without finding You tonight. My heart is burdened deeply for some reason; I don't know. I pray, dear Jesus, once more, I call. Let that person, if they're not here at the altar already, come quickly, Lord. Grant it. May be their last call, You've just saddened my heart for some reason. And I pray that You'll grant it through Jesus' Name.  Everybody in prayer, will you? I'm just strangely feeling tonight something wrong. Something's wrong somewhere. What's wrong? Come on. Everybody seek out your heart. Find out just what's wrong, as we sing once more. As we sing come now. God's speaking to somebody, I know it...?... God bless you.  ... waiting not  To rid my soul of one dark blot,  To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,  O Lamb of God, I come! I come!  Just as I am, Thou will receive,  Will welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;  Because Thy promise I believe,  O Lamb of God, I come! I come! While we sing this next verse as the last verse, I want the ministers to come around here and pray with us, if you will. The clergy here in the church believes in an old fashion altar call, where here come twenty, thirty people have knelt, sinners repenting of their sins. If you want to come, stand around the altar, and pray with them, will you do it? Will you come now while we sing this next verse? Any Christian worker that knows--got burdens of souls upon your heart. If you haven't, you should have. God knows you should have.

 

I charge--challenge you to come tonight and make a real old fashion Pentecost, then watch what God does tomorrow night in the healing service. You get this thing straightened out and...?... here. You get this thing fixed out and watch what God will do. You just do it; I challenge you. I don't very seldom get worked up like this, but something's a doing it, something moving me. And I feel very constrained. And I'm very interested in this call, feeling that there's more here, should pour down around this altar here, still burdens my heart. And if I be God's servant, and knowing that I know this is coming from God, and I say it in Jesus' Name; you know I wouldn't say that 'less I meant it. There's something wrong. And I want you to come while we sing once more. The workers and so forth, and sinners, and all, gather around the altar that wants to pray now. Help me sing once more?  Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,  Will welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;  Because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

 

THE TIE THAT BINDS  Blest be the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred mind Is like to that above. We share our mutual woes, Our mutual burdens bear; And often for each other flows A sympathizing tear. When we asunder part, It gives us inward pain; But we shall still be joined in heart, And hope to meet again. Don't you just love those old songs? Like... Down at the cross where my Saviour died, Down there for cleansing from sin I... There to my heart was the blood applied; Glory to His name! Glory... Prayer card number 70 is out, he says. Prayer card A-70... Glory to His precious name! Oh, there to my heart was the blood applied; Glory to His Name!

 

THE FAMILY PRAYER How many knows "Don't Forget The Family Prayer"? How many prays in your family, your family prays? Oh, that's good. Let's try it once, just like old times now. Don't forget the family prayer, Jesus wants to meet you there; He will take your every care, Oh, don't forget the family prayer. You like that? Let's try it again: Don't forget the family prayer, Jesus wants to meet you there; (You got a date now) He will take your every care, Oh, don't forget your family prayer.  [A sister says, "Brother Branham, could I say something?"--Ed.] Sure can, sister. [The sister begins speaking. Blank spot on tape--Ed.] Sister Nash, that's very fine. Oh, if you'll just... If we trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out; Just take your burden to the Lord and leave them there. Leave them there, leave it there, Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there; If we trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out; Take your burden to the Lord and leave them there.

 

BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves, Oh, we shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves. Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness, Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve; Oh, by and by the harvest, then the time of reaping, We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves. Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves, We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves; Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves, We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves. Well, that is fine. Bringing in the sheaves, that's what the fathers and the mothers do, bring them to the Lord Jesus.

 

I WILL MEET YOU   I will meet you in the morning, By the bright river side, When all sorrows have drifted away; I'll be standing at the portal, When the gates open wide, At the close of life's long, weary day. I will meet you in the morning With a "How do you do," And we will set down by the river And with rapture old acquaintance renew, You will know me in the morning, By the smile that I wear, I will meet you in the morning, In the city, city built foursquare.
