Full Text

1 The promise true, which God hath spoken,
Can never pass away,
But always will abide unbroken,
Just as it is today.

I can, I will, I do believe,
Within my heart I now receive;
The promise sure was made for me,
Through faith I have the victory.

2 I come to Thee, O Lord, obeying
What Thou commandest me;
Oh, hear the prayer my heart is praying,
And let it answered be. [Refrain]

3 I will not question any longer,
But count the vict’ry won;
My faith this moment, growing stronger,
Proclaims the work is done. [Refrain]

4 ’Tis done, and on Thy word I’m resting,
Content Thy will to do,
No longer doubting Thee nor testing—
I know that Thou art true. [Refrain]
