3197. I Will Uphold Thee

1. O promise sweet! He leadeth me
O’er waters wild and deep;
I will not fear the raging sea
If He my soul doth keep.

Refrain
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
And He will lead me home.

2. Sometimes He leads o’er mountain height,
Or valleys dark and drear;
Yet, worn and weary, in the night
His blessèd voice I hear. [Refrain]

3. Sometimes He leads by waters still,
Where all is peace and love;
And quiet joys my bosom fill,
Like that sweet rest above. [Refrain]

4. It matters not if shadows lie
Upon my pathway here;
A golden light illumes my sky,
If only God is near. [Refrain]
