Verse 1:
G/D      D        G/D    D
From the breaking of the dawn
       G  D/F♯   Em     A
To the setting   of the sun,
G/A    D              G          G/A  D(no3rd)    G/D
I will stand on every promise of Your word.
D   G/D      D      G/D       D
    Words of power, strong to save,
          G  D/F♯  Em    A
That will never    pass away;
G/A    D              G          G/A  D(no3rd)  G/D  D(no3rd)
I will stand on every promise of Your word.
D/F♯     G           F♯m
For Your covenant is sure,
Bm7    Em     G   G/B  Asus4    A
And on this I am  secure:
G/A   D              G            G/A  D(no3rd)  G/D  D(no3rd)
I can stand on every promise from Your word.
Verse 2:
When I stumble and I sin,
Condemnation pressing in,
I will stand on every promise of Your word.
You are faithful to forgive,
That in freedom I might live,
So I stand on every promise of Your word.
Guilt to innocence restored;
You remember sins no more.
So I'll stand on every promise of Your word.
Verse 3
When I'm faced with anguished choice
I will listen for Your voice,
And I'll stand on every promise of Your word.
Through this dark and troubled land,
You will guide me with Your hand
As I stand on every promise of Your word.
And You've promised to complete
Every work begun in me,
So I'll stand on every promise of Your word.
Verse 4:
Hope that lifts me from despair;
Love that casts out every fear
As I stand on every promise of Your word.
Not forsaken, not alone,
For the Comforter has come;
And I stand on every promise of Your word.
Grace sufficient, grace for me;
Grace for all who will believe.
We will stand on every promise of Your word.

From the breaking of the dawn
To the setting of the sun
I will stand on every promise of Your word
Words of power strong to save
That will never pass away
I will stand on every promise of Your word
For Your covenant is sure
And on this I am secure
I can stand on every promise of Your word

When I stumble and I sin
Condemnation pressing in
I will stand on every promise of Your word
You are faithful to forgive
That in freedom I might live
So I stand on every promise of Your word
Guilt to innocence restored;
You remember sins no more
So I'll stand on every promise of Your word

When I'm faced with anguished choice
I will listen for Your voice
And I'll stand on every promise of Your word
Through this dark and troubled land
You will guide me with your hand
As I stand on every promise of Your word
And you've promised to complete
Every work begun in me
So I'll stand on every promise of Your word

Hope that lifts me from despair
Love that casts out every fear
As I stand on every promise of Your word
Not forsaken not alone
For the Comforter has come
And I stand on every promise of Your word
Grace sufficient grace for me
Grace for all who will believe
We will stand on every promise of Your word
