Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.@Isaiah 41:10

O promise sweet! He leadeth me
O’er waters wild and deep;
I will not fear the raging sea
If He my soul doth keep.

Refrain

I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
And He will lead me home.

Sometimes He leads o’er mountain height,
Or valleys dark and drear;
Yet, worn and weary, in the night
His blessèd voice I hear.

Refrain

Sometimes He leads by waters still,
Where all is peace and love;
And quiet joys my bosom fill,
Like that sweet rest above.

Refrain

It matters not if shadows lie
Upon my pathway here;
A golden light illumes my sky,
If only God is near.

Refrain
