2313. He Promised to Keep Me

1. Christ will not fail me! how precious the word!
I am secure with my Savior and Lord;
His love faileth never, endureth forever,
And legions of angels shall over me guard.

Refrain
He promised to keep me, support and defend me
When trials o’ertake and temptations assail;
He promised to guide me, and I am persuaded
His promises never, no, never can fail.

2. Christ will not fail me! a child of His care;
All of my burdens He gladly will share.
He’s ever beside me, no harm can betide me,
For when I most need Him, my Savior is there. [Refrain]

3. Christ will not fail me when tempted by sin;
He felt its power in the struggle to win.
My weakness He knoweth; His love ever showeth,
So sweetly controlling my spirit within. [Refrain]

4. Onward I journey, no need shall I know
But that His goodness and power will bestow;
The while I am clinging, my glad heart is singing,
For Christ is beside me wherever I go. [Refrain]
