1 The Lord hath declared and the Lord will perform;
“Behold! I am near to deliver,
A refuge and fortress, a covert in storm;”
He keepeth his promise forever.

Refrain:
Forever! Forever! O not for a day!
He keepeth his promise forever!
To all who believe, to all who obey,
He keepeth his promise forever!

2 Who seek him shall find him, shall find him today,
The word is to all, “whosoever!”
No soul that entreateth, he turneth away;
He keepeth his promise forever. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ often my toil seems but labor in vain,
I leave with the Lord my endeavor;
I patiently wait for the sunshine and rain—
He keepeth his promise forever! [Refrain]

4 My heart may sink low in the depths of its woe,
But never, he tells me, O never!
The frail, bruised reed will he break; and I know
He keepeth his promise forever. [Refrain]

5 The bonds that unite us in earth’s dearest ties,
The rude hand of Time will dissever;
But we shall renew them again in the skies;
He keepeth his promise forever! [Refrain]
