Standing on the Promises of God

In today's world when we think of promises we think of "broken promises". We immediately flash back to a hurt when someone let us down, lied to us, or abandoned us. We can be assured that God keeps His promises! A great hymn of the faith reminds us in, Standing on the Promises by R. Kelso Carter, 1849-1926

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.

 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.  

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.

 4. Standing on the promises I cannot fall, listening every moment to the Spirit's call,
 resting in my Savior as my all in all, standing on the promises of God.

Refrain: Standing, standing, standing on the promises of Christ my Savior; standing, standing, I'm standing on the promises of God.
 
Be wise today and always - stand on the Rock of Christ the true foundation.
