Representative Text

1 Though the storms of life appall,
Though the shadows darkly fall,
Though you bend beneath the sorely chast’ning rod,
If your trust in him is sure
You shall ev’ry storm endure,
There is safety in the promises of God!

Refrain:
Yes, there’s safety in the promises of God
Through the ages they have long unshaken stood,
Tho’ the starry worlds decay,
They shall never pass away
There is safety in the promises of God!

2 When thy daily cares assail,
When the tempter would prevail
When a toilsome path thy feet so long have trod,
There’s a sure and safe retreat
For each trying hour you meet,
There is safety in the promises of God! [Refrain]

3 Strength and courage you may know,
For the conflict with the foe,
Though each day the hosts of darkness are abroad,
There’s a haven ever nigh,
To its shelter you may fly,
There is safety in the promises of God! [Refrain]
