“He who promised is faithful.” – Hebrews 10:23

Standing on the Promises

Verse 1:
Standing on the promises of Christ, my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring;
“Glory in the highest,” I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Chorus:
Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God, my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Verse 2:
Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

Chorus

Verse 3:
Standing on the promises of Christ, the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Chorus

Verse 4:
Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
List’ning ev’ry moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Chorus
