Be Strong in the Lord

Be strong in the Lord, and be of good courage; Your mighty Defender is always the same. Mount up with wings, as the eagle ascending; Vic-t’ry is sure when you call on His name.

Be strong, be strong, be strong in the Lord; And be of good courage, for He is your guide. Be strong, be strong, be strong in the Lord; And rejoice, for the vic-t’ry is yours.

Hymn
Standing on the Promises

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.

Chorus – Standing, standing, Standing on the promises of God, my Savior; Standing, standing, 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.

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.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall, Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call, Resting in my Savior as my all in all, Standing on the promises of God.
