Hymn

"STANDING ON THE PROMISES"

This hymn speaks of the promises of God's Word as the eternally firm and unchanging foundation on which we can rest our faith. In the midst of doubt and fear these promises "cannot fail." By standing firm on them we will be able to sing "Glory in the highest!" for all eternity. Yet the hymn speaks not merely of the promises of God's Word, but of all the contents of Scripture: the Bible is "the living Word of God" by which we "prevail" in the midst of adversity (v. 2), and it is the "Spirit's sword" by which we may be "overcoming daily" (v. 3). There is no other sure foundation on which to rest our faith than on the very words and promises of God. "I am standing on the promises of God!" is the joyful exclamation of a heart filled with faith, and it shall be our song throughout eternity. 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.

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 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 on the promises I cannot fall,

List'ning every moment to the Spirit's call,

Resting in my Savior as my all in all

Standing on the promises of God!

Author: R. Kelso Carter, 1886
