Representative Text

1 Sweet is the promise of Christ who died,
Opening for sinners the fountain wide;
Come ye and wash in the sacred tide
Flowing on Calvary from His side.

Refrain:
Sweet is the promise so rich and free,
Sweet is the promise of Christ to me;
Where He abideth I soon shall be,
Saved by His grace thro’ eternity.

2 Sweet is the promise, I hear Him say,
"All of thy burdens I’ll take away";
Sweet is the promise, "I’ll with thee stay,"
Thro’ all the stress of life’s weary day. [Refrain]

3 Sweet is the promise of Christ to all,
Answering freely His loving call;
If ye believe Him naught can appall,
For He will keep you whate’er befall. [Refrain]
