Representative Text

1 When you receive no answer to prayer,
Never lose faith nor yield to despair.
Give unto Jesus your burden of care,
Keep on believing in the promises of God.

Refrain:
Keep on believing, keep on believing,
Keep on believing in the promises of God;
Tho’ delay may long endure,
Yet the answer will be sure:
Keep on believing in the promises of God.

2 Doubt not the Lord when tempted and tried;
Worlds pass away, His Word shall abide!
He is almighty, in Him you may hide,
Keep on believing in the promises of God. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ you should walk in darkness awhile,
Over the thorns for many a mile,
Watch for the dawning, and sing with a smile,
Keep on believing in the promises of God. [Refrain]
