promised to be my Friend forever!
He said He’d go with me all the way,
In sunshine or rain,
Laughter or pain,
From break of dawn,
Until the ending of day
Jesus promised He’d be with me in the valley!
The “Lily” and “Rose of Sharon” He will be!
He will hold my trembling hand,
And say, “Child, I understand!”
“Have no fear; you are safe here with Me!
Jesus promised to be with me on the mountain!
Ah, there my soul will soar to awesome heights!
Oh, what joy it is to know,
That wherever I may go,
He will always be my Guiding Light!
Jesus promised me a home up in Heaven!
He’s gone away my mansion to prepare!
Those jasper walls and streets of gold,
My wondering eyes shall behold,
When my joyous soul shall enter there!
