Representative Text

1 He promised me, tho' blind and halt and lame,
He would not cast met out if I but came;
He promised me, if I did but believe,
He would my burdened soul from sin relieve.

Refrain:
He promised me, and I am sure He will
Each loving promise, faithfully fulfill;
For all the counsels of the Lord are sure,
His word, it shall from age to age endure.

2 He promised me, when friends and comforts flee,
That He my friend and Comforter would be;
He promised me, that whatsoe'er betide,
He would from day to day with me abide. [Refrain]

3 He promised me, in life's last solemn hour,
When death seems near and I within its pow'r,
That then I should but close my wearied eyes
On earth, to ope them in Paradise. [Refrain]

4 He promisen me that I with Him should stand,
When He shall come to reign o'er sea and land;
He promised me a sweet eternal rest,
A place within the mansions of the blest. [Refrain]
