The Word Of Promise
by Adaline H. Beery
In the Lord's good promises my heart is glad,
They are full of loving kindness true,
And they lift me when I'm fainting by the way,
For each trial they are ever new.
When I walk in shadow and my life seems alone,
His sweet company my Lord will give;
And with strength and courage I will work and sing,
On the manna of his Word I Live.
This of all is dearest to the sons of men,
'Tis a refuge from all sin and care;
"All who on the blessed Son of God believe,
Everlasting life in heaven share."
Blessed Word! that keeps me all the day;
Blessed Guide! be always near I pray;
Let me rest forever on the Fock of truth,
And thy perfect law for e'er obey.
