If waves of affliction should over thee roll,
Tho’ tempests around thee may sweep,
No storms on life’s oceans can injure thy soul,
The Savior has promised to keep.

Refrain

Then hold thy faith steady, my brother,
And be not afraid;
For Jesus will keep
Every promise He’s made.

Whene’er thou art weary, and long seems the road,
If laden with care thou art pressed,
Thy Savior has promised to carry thy load,
Has promised to give thee His rest.

Refrain

If thou hast been praying for more of His grace,
Hast prayed to know more of His will,
Or prayed to be held in His loving embrace,
He’s promised such prayers to fulfill.

Refrain

Thy dear, loving Savior has gone to prepare
A mansion in glory for thee;
He’s promised to take thee to live with Him there,
If thou only faithful wilt be.

Refrain
