598 Standing on the Promises

I

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.

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.

II

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.

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.

III

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.

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.

IV

Standing on the promises I cannot fall, listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,

Resting in my Saviour as my all in all, standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.

317 What a Friend We Have in Jesus

I

What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!

II

Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged, take it to the Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness. Take it to the Lord in prayer.

III

Are we weak and heavy-laden, cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Saviour, still our refuge – take it to the Lord in prayer.

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer;

In His arms He’ll take and shield thee, thou wilt find a solace there.
