I’ll tarry at a promise
Till Jesus meets me there,
He comes along the promise way;
His words, so free and gracious,
I’ll take to Him in prayer,
He comes along the promise way.

Refrain

Glory! glory! My Savior comes to me,
His bright and blessèd light I see;
Glory! glory! He meets my soul today,
He comes along the promise way.

From sin I sought salvation,
And called upon His name,
He comes along the promise way;
O come, ye heavy laden,
His grace is still the same,
He comes along the promise way.

Refrain

With every word He gives me,
I hasten to His feet,
He comes along the promise way;
He fills me with His Spirit,
He makes my joy complete,
He comes along the promise way.

Refrain

When earthly blossoms perish,
And wintry storms appear,
He comes along the promise way;
He soothes my heart in trouble,
He dries the falling tear,
He comes along the promise way.

Refrain
