770. I Know God's Promise Is True

1 For God so loved this sinful world,
His Son He freely gave,
That whosoever would believe
Eternal life should have.

’Tis true, oh, yes, ’tis true,
God’s wonderful promise is true;
For I’ve trusted, and tested, and tried it,
And I know God’s promise is true.

2 I was a wayward, wand’ring child,
A slave to sin and fear,
Until this blessed promise fell
Like music on my ear. [Refrain]

3 The “whosoever” of the Lord,
I trusted was for me,
I took Him at His gracious word;
From sin He set me free. [Refrain]

4 Eternal life, begun below,
Now fills my heart and soul;
I’ll sing His praise forevermore
Who has redeemed my soul. [Refrain]
