Words and Music by R. Kelso Carter

Hebrews 10:23
"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith
without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)"

divider

          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 - standing on the promises)
            Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            I'm standing on the promises of God.

          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
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            I'm standing on the promises of God.

          Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
          Bound to Him eternally by loves strong cord,
          Over coming daily with the Spirit's sword,
          Standing on the promises of God.

            Chorus
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            I'm standing on the promises of God.

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

            Chorus
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
            Standing,                     standing,
            (Standing on the promises - standing on the promises)
            I'm standing on the promises of God.
