I Like The Promise
Old Gospel Song
1. Christ is calling all His children, "Come and be blessed.
All ye now hearvy ladened, I'll give you rest."
Just lean on this promise, brother, you'll find it's true,
But I like the one that says, "I'm coming for you."
Yes, I like the promise that He made when He left.
And tho' He's the Rock and I can hide in the cleft;
And tho' He will pilot till the storm is all through,
I like the promise, "I'm coming for you."
2. Many are the sainted pilgrims gone on before,
Loved ones who've left us now await on that shore.
And sometimes their leaving's left me lonely and blue,
Until Jesus whispered, "I am coming for you."
