Representative Text

1 God is faithful, ever faithful;
He will surely keep his word;
To the uttermost fulfilling
Ev’ry promise I have heard.

Refrain:
God is faithful, ever faithful;
I will trust him all the way;
God is faithful ever faithful,
He will keep me night and day.

2 God is faithful; he will do it;
Not my own weak heart I trust,
But his Spirit dwelling in me,
Wise and holy, kind and just. [Refrain]

3 God is faithful; this my refuge;
When the storms of trial rise:
Help is coming, swiftly coming
From the hills beyond the skies. [Refrain]

4 God is faithful; he will make me
More than conqueror in the strife;
Yielding wholly to his guidance,
This is blessing, this is life! [Refrain]
