Promise Is to You, The, #109

Lyrics

Verse 1
Come, longing Christian, lose your fear,
The promise is to you;
The Master bids you be of cheer,
The promise is to you.

Chorus
The promise is to you,
The promise is to you;
Don’t you need it?
Won’t you plead it?
The promise is to you.

Verse 2
Your all upon the altar lay,
The promise is to you;
A living sacrifice to-day,
The promise is to you.

Verse 3
Be this your pentecostal hour,
The promise is to you;
Receive the Holy Ghost and power,
The promise is to you.

Verse 4
His fire shall all your dross consume,
The promise is to you;
His light your ev’ry step illume,
The promise is to you.
