and afterwards build thine house.

Cling to the Promises
When doubts and fears assail thy soul and o’er thy heart like billows roll, when wrath seems hovering like a cloud, O cling to the promise of God.
When tempted sore on every side to follow with the drifting tide, to leave the path thy Saviour trod, O cling to the promise of God.
When all is peace and joy and health, and fortune brings to you much wealth, forget not in this cherished state to cling to the promise of God.
When everything is bright and gay, and when we hear the dear Lord say, “Come, dwell upon the mountain-top,” still cling to the promise of God.
Chorus: O cling to the promises, they never will fail; O cling to the promises, to the promises of God; In Christ are the promises Yea and Amen! Then cling, O cling to the promises of God.
