Play Song
I was wand'ring in a wilderness
Of deep despair and sin,
And my feet were growing weary of the road;
But my sorrow, doubt, and care
Fled when Jesus met me there,
And I learned to trust the promises of God.
I believe the promises of God,
I can trust His never-failing Word;
When earthly hopes shall fail,
Or the devil's at my tail,
I rest upon the promises of God.

I was followed by the tempter,
As he watched me day by day,
While I sought the shining path my Savior trod;
But with Jesus at my side,
I maintained my forward stride,
And I conquered through the promises of God.
I believe the promises of God,
I can trust His never-failing Word;
When earthly hopes shall fail,
Or the devil's at my tail,
I rest upon the promises of God.

After days of glad rejoicing,
Came a time of grief for me,
When I stumbled 'neath the pressure of the rod;
And my heart so torn by grief
Found its comfort and relief
Only through the blessed promises of God.
I believe the promises of God,
I can trust His never-failing Word;
When earthly hopes shall fail,
Or the devil's at my tail,
I rest upon the promises of God.

So I pave the path before me
With the promises of God;
They have lightened ev'ry step my feet have trod;
Though the path may not be clear,
I can walk it without fear,
Through the never-failing promises of God.
I believe the promises of God,
I can trust His never-failing Word;
When earthly hopes shall fail,
Or the devil's at my tail,
I rest upon the promises of God.
