Representative Text

1. I am resting on the promise
Of the blessed King of Kings,
That my soul shall dwell in safety,
'Neath the shadow of His wings.

I am resting O how calmly,
In His all protecting care;
For His word of life assures me,
He will hear and answer prayer.

2. I am resting on His promise,
And whatever may betide,
There is naught on earth can harm me,
If in Him I shall confide. [CHORUS]

3. I am resting on His promise
That will never, never fail;
It will be my sweetest comfort,
Till I anchor in the vale. [CHORUS]
