There hath not failed one word of all His good promise.@1 Kings 8:56

Alice J. Cleator, 1904, alt.

Herbert J. Lacey (🔊 pdf nwc).

O the promises of God
Long have Satan’s might withstood,
And no power of darkness
O’er them shall prevail;
They are builded sure and strong
For the conflict with the wrong,
And those promises were
Never known to fail.

Refrain

God’s promises were
Never known to fail!
No power of darkness o’er
Them shall prevail!
They are builded sure and strong
For the conflict with the wrong,
God’s promises were
Never known to fail!

O the mighty hand of time
Fashions many works sublime,
Yet the tide of years their
Splendor shall assail;
But the Word of God this hour,
Thrills with all the old-time power,
For those promises were
Never known to fail.

Refrain

Trust those holy words today,
Let them guide you on life’s way,
Seek their refuge in
Temptation’s roughest gale;
Strength and courage they shall lend,
Power from Heaven shall descend,
For those promises were
Never known to fail.

Refrain
