Representative Text

1 My hope of salvation is steadfast and sure,
I’ve builded my house on foundation secure,
The rock of His word that shall ever endure,
The promise unfailing is mine.

Refrain:
The promise unfailing is mine,
I rest on this bulwark divine,
Tho’ earth pass away,
His word stands for aye,
The promise unfailing is mine.

2 The storm clouds of sorrow may over me spread,
My hopes, glad and golden may from me have fled,
Still on this assurance I pillow my head:
The promise unfailing is mine. [Refrain]

3 The Tempter may strive to ensnare and defeat,
And many a pitfall is laid for my feet,
But grace all availing, each trial shall meet,
The promise unfailing is mine. [Refrain]

4 How happy my lot since the Lord has control
What glad, sweet assurance abides in my soul;
My heart sings with joy as I press t’wards the goal,
The promise unfailing is mine. [Refrain]
