Sweet is the promise


    • Sweet is the promise, ‘I will not forget thee,’ 
    • nothing can molest or turn my soul away; 
    • e‟en though the night be dark within the valley, 
    • just beyond is shining an eternal day. 

    • I will not forget thee or leave thee, 
    • in My hands I‟ll hold thee, in My arms I‟ll fold thee; 
    • I will not forget thee or leave thee 
    • I am thy Redeemer, I will care for thee. 

    • How can I show my gratitude to Jesus, 
    • for His love unfailing and His tender care? 
    • I will proclaim to others His salvation, 
    • that they may accept Him and His promise share. 

    • Trusting the promise, ‘I will not forget thee,’ 
    • onward will I go with songs of joy and praise; 
    • though earth despise me, though my friends forsake me, 
    • Jesus will be near me, gladdening my days. 

    • When at the golden portals I am standing, 
    • all my tribulations, all my sorrows past, 
    • how sweet to hear the blessed proclamation: 
    • Enter faithful servant, welcome home at last
