Original Key: D


Verse 1:
D
Resting in Your promise,
       Gmaj7                               Bm7
I will rest within the knowledge that You care:
           Gmaj7
I put my trust in You.
    D
And deep within the darkness,
          Gmaj7                     Bm7
Though my enemies surround, I will not fear:
            Gmaj7
I put my trust in You.
Bridge:
Em7            D                   A
    And when I don't know what to do,
Em7               D            A
    Jesus, I will fix my eyes on You.
Chorus:
            D                  Em7
You're my defender, I hide my hope in You,
               Bm7           A              Gmaj7
You are the loving arms my broken heart can run to.
               D                   Em7
And I will remember that there is nothing You can't do,
                Bm7              A            Gmaj7
'Cause You are God, and You are good, and I surrender:
             D    Gmaj7            Bm7    Gmaj7
You're my defender,    You're my defender.
Verse 2:
You are strong when I am weakest,
You're the peace that passes everything I see:
I put my trust in You.
I'm surrendering completely,
Laying all my cares here at Your feet:
I put my trust in You.
Mid section:
D              Em7             Bm7
    A mighty fortress is our God,
             G                D
I will not fear, I will not fear.
            Em7               Bm7
Safe and secure here in Your will,
           Gmaj7
I will not fear.
Coda:
                Bm7              A/C♯           Gmaj7
'Cause You are God, and You are good, and I surrender:        

RESTING IN YOUR PROMISE
I will rest within the knowledge that You care
I put my trust in You
Deep within the darkness
Though my enemies surround I will not fear
I put my trust in You

And when I don't know what to do
I will fix my eyes on You

You're my defender
I hide my hope in You
You are the loving arms my broken heart can run to
I will remember
That there is nothing You can't do
For You are God
You are good
And I surrender
You're my defender


You are strong when I am weakest
You're the peace that passes everything I see
I put my trust in You
I'm surrendering completely
Laying all my cares here at Your feet
I put my trust in You

A mighty fortress is our God
I will not fear
I will not fear
Safe and secure here in Your love
I will not fear
I will not fear
