I have found repose for my weary soul,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior;
And a harbor safe when the billows roll,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.
I will fear no foe in the deadly strife,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior;
I will bear my lot in the toil of life,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.

Refrain

Resting on His mighty arm forever,
Never from His loving heart to sever.
I will rest by grace in His strong embrace,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.

I will sing my song as the days go by,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior;
And rejoice in hope, while I live or die,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.
I can smile at grief and abide in pain,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior;
And the loss of all shall be highest gain,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.

Refrain

O, the peace and joy of the life I live,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior;
O, the strength and grace only God can give,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.
Whosoever will may be saved today,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior;
And begin to walk in the holy way,
Trusting in the promise of the Savior.

Refrain
