219. STANDING ON THE PROMISES

Christ in Song,

1.
Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Thro' eternal ages let his praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing.
Standing on the promises of God.

Chorus:
Standing, Standing, 
Standing on the promises of God
Standing, Standing,
I'm standing on the promises of God.

2.
Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.  [Chorus]

3.
Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.  [Chorus]

4.
Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to him eternally by love's strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit's sword,
Standing on the promises of God.  [Chorus]

5.
Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
List'ning ev'ry moment to the Spirit's call,
Resting in my Saviour, as my all in all. 
Standing on the promises of God.  [Chorus]
