The promises have raised us up
And made us look ahead
And blessed with holy fellowship
And new life from the dead.
They set apart a special folk
Who know that God is real
Who lean on what He says and does
And not just how they feel.
They’ve seen Him clear the path for peace
When all seemed bent on strife
And food and drink in desert drought
As parched land burst with life.
Such promises will stay the course
And show us mercy’s plan
And honour, giving, gratitude
To dignify each man.
And One Man nobly leads the way
And meets this life head on
And triumphs through a Cross and Tomb
‘Til Heaven is fully won.
