Lyrics

Verse 1
I’ll tarry at a promise, till Jesus meets me there,
He comes along the promise-way;
His words, so free and gracious, I’ll take to him in prayer,
He comes along the promise-way.

(Chorus)
Glory! glory! my Saviour comes to me,
His bright and blessed light I see;
Glory! glory! he meets my soul today,
He comes along the promise-way.

Verse 2
From sin I sought salvation, and called upon his name,
He comes along the promise-way;
O come, ye heavy-laden, his grace is still the same,
He comes along the promise-way.

Verse 3
With every word he gives me, I hasten to his feet,
He comes along the promise-way;
He fills me with his Spirit, he makes my joy complete,
He comes along the promise-way.

Verse 4
When earthly blossoms perish, and wintry storms appear,
He comes along the promise-way;
He soothes my heart in trouble, he dries the falling tear,
He comes along the promise-way.
