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.

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]
