HYMNAL: Standing on the Promises


Author: Russell Kelso Carter


1 Standing on the promises of Christ, my King,

Through eternal ages let his praises ring;

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.



Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God, my Savior;

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. [Refrain]


3 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. [Refrain]


4 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. [Refrain]

    Hi Mike! I'm one of your biggest fans and a piano teacher, church pianist, and choir director. I follow you and your family, DVR and watch your show every week, donate to some of your charities, and refuse to call you a "Politician"!! You're a dedicated Christian, first, and just a good guy from a good family! I love that you send out these hymns. Just wanted to put this out there. .....Maybe include some of the hymns' histories? When I have my students play at our church during the summer, they have to research the hymn and tell the congregation about the hymn; the composer of the music and the lyrics; WHEN they were composed; their mental state when they did; which century; etc. Some are really, reeeeeeally interesting, i.e. Amazing Grace and It is Well With My Soul!! Keep up the good work, Mike!! Stay tough and thanks for looking out for us!!
