Standing On the Promise

[Verse 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 my Savior,

Standing, standing…I’m standing on the prom-is-es of God.

 

[Verse 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 pre-vail,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

[Chorus]

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Savior,

Standing, standing…I’m standing on the prom-is-es of God.

 

[Verse 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]

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Savior,

Standing, standing…I’m standing on the prom-is-es of God.

 

[Verse 4]

Standing on the prom-is-es of Christ the Lord,

Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,

Over-coming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

[Chorus]

Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Savior,

Standing, standing…I’m standing on the prom-is-es of God.

What a Friend We Have in Jesus

[Verse 1]

What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry, Everything to God in prayer!

Oh what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry, Everything to God in prayer!

 

[Verse 2]

Have we trials and temptations? is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness, Take it to the Lord in prayer.

 

[Verse 3]

Are we weak and heavy laden, Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge, Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Do thy friends despise for sake thee?  Take it to the Lord in prayer.

In His arms He’ll take and shield thee; Thou wilt find a solace there.

You Raise Me Up

[Verse 1]

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come and my heart burdened be;

Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,

Until you come and sit awhile with me.

 

[Chorus]

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up to more than I can be.

 

[Chorus]

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders

You raise me up to more than I can be.
