1 Oh, the precious promises in Jesus’ name,
Giving hope and joy divine;
Wake the anthems sweet,
In ev’ry heart complete,
Let the praises all be Thine.

Refrain:
Precious hope,
Blessed hope,
In Jesus’ name is mine today;
My heart grows light,
My prospects bright,
For ev’ry tear His hand shall wipe away.

2 There are none so sad in all this vale of tears,
‘Mid earth’s sorrows, grief, and pain,
As are those who know
No hope in Christ below;
In His dying love no gain. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the time will come when you and I shall go
Tho’ the valley dark and drear;
But our heads may rest
On Jesus’ precious breast,
And our hearts know not a fear. [Refrain]
