1 Sweet is the path of promise,
Guarded from fear and dread;
Over each shade and sorrow
Light of his love is shed;
Sweet are the words of comfort,
Cheering the way I tread.

Refrain:
“Lo, I will be with thee!”
How cheering the word!
On this I am leaning;
“Thus sayeth the Lord.”
Our pathway is brightened
All thro’ the dim vale;
“I’ll never forsake thee,
I’ll never forsake thee,
I’ll never forsake thee,
Tho’ all else should fail.”

2 Bright is the path of promise,
Blessings divine I share;
On him who walks beside me
Cast I my ev’ry care;
Hear I the words of comfort,
Message of joy to bear. [Refrain]

3 Peaceful the path of promise,
Since I’m an heir divine;
Led by his light unfailing,
Brightly my hope shall shine;
Master of all, be near me,
Keep me forever thine. [Refrain]
