This is the promise that He hath promised us, even eternal life.@1 John 2:25

I always meet my Savior
Upon some promise sweet,
And there I listen to what He may say;
He life eternal gives me,
For Jesus ever loves me,
He is coming by the promise way today.

Refrain

He is coming by the promise way,
Coming by the promise way,
Coming by the promise way today;
My heart goes out to meet Him,
With joy and gladness greet Him,
He is coming by the promise way today.

I tell Him all my troubles,
It gives my soul relief,
His counsels I would ever then obey;
With grace He doth supply me,
And ever standeth by me,
He is coming by the promise way today.

Refrain

He fits me for His service,
With life and love complete,
I yield unto His own and precious way;
To work for Jesus ever,
Shall be my best endeavor,
For He cometh by the promise way today.

Refrain

To do His will—this only
Shall be my one desire,
In oneness with my Savior would I stay;
Thus yoked with Him, Christ Jesus,
Work jointly with my Savior,
I shall meet Him by the promise way today.

Refrain
