Standing On The Promises







Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
through eternal ages let his praises ring;
glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
standing on the promises of God.

Refrain:
Standing, standing,
standing on the promises of Christ my Savior;
standing, standing,
I'm standing on the promises of God.
Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
by the living Word of God I shall prevail,
standing on the promises of God. (Refrain)

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
bound to him eternally by love's strong cord,
overcoming daily with the Spirit's sword,
standing on the promises of God. (Refrain)

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
listening every moment to the Spirit's call,
resting in my Savior as my all in all,
standing on the promises of God. (Refrain)

Composer: R. Kelso Carter (1886)

  1. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns--and Happy New Year. What a great hymn to begin 2011! Whatever circumstances come our way, we do need to keep "standing on the promises" God has made in His holy Word. If you want to learn a bit more about this hymn, check out my blog for today. God bless.
