Lyrics

He who brought His an­cient people,
With a strong and migh­ty hand,
Out of all their cru­el bond­age,
Into Ca­naan’s pro­mised land.

Refrain

He has said, and we be­lieve it,
’Tis a prom­ise made of old,
From the trust­ing and the lov­ing
No good thing will He with­hold.

He who led them through the des­ert,
By the cloud that went be­fore,
He whose good­ness ne­ver failed them,
Though they grieved Him o’er and o’er.

Refrain

God is faith­ful to His pro­mise,
He is mind­ful of His own;
On our jour­ney to His king­dom
We shall ne­ver walk alone.

Refrain

We shall have His kind pro­tect­ion
And His love as in the past;
Though our days be few or ma­ny,
He will guide us to the last.
