1 Clinging to His promise,
Trusting in His word;
Evermore I’m resting,
Resting in the Lord.
Following His guiding,
E’er content to be
In His love abiding,
Thro’ His mercy free.

Refrain:
Clinging to His promise,
Trusting day by day,
Gladly I’ll go forward;
Love will light the way.

2 Clinging to His promise,
Trusting more and more,
Hiding in His shadow
Till life’s storms are o’er.
List’ning to His counsel,
Waiting at His feet;
E’er His will obeying;
O the hours are sweet. [Refrain]

3 Clinging to His promise,
Looking up to Him,
Trusting in His guidance
When the way is dim.
Clouds may round me gather,
But they cannot harm;
He will keep me safely,
Sheltered by His arm. [Refrain]
