1 Standing on the promise, it is right, I know;
We are safely guarded from the raging foe;
Onward, then, and upward, let us ever go,
Standing on the precious word of God.

2 Standing on the promise, we shall never fall;
Firmly we believe that Christ is all in all;
We regard with pleasure e’en His faintest call,
Standing on the precious word of God.

3 Standing on the promise, nothing is more sure;
Things of earth may crumble, we are all secure,
And with living grace in Christ we shall endure,
Standing on the precious word of God.

4 Standing on the promise, we’re prepared to die;
We are ready, waiting for our home on high,
Passing thro’ the vale of death there’s not a cry,
Standing on the precious word of God.
