2850. I Know God's Promise Is True

1. For God so loved this sinful world,
His Son He freely gave,
That whosoever would believe
Eternal life should have.

’Tis true, O yes, ’tis true,
God’s wonderful promise is true;
For I’ve trusted, and tested, and tried it,
And I know God’s promise is true.

2. I was a wayward, wand’ring child,
A slave to sin and fear,
Until this blessèd promise fell
Like music on my ear. [Refrain]

3. The whosoever of the Lord,
I trusted was for me,
I took Him at His gracious word;
From sin He set me free. [Refrain]

4. Eternal life, begun below,
Now fills my heart and soul.
I’ll sing His praise forevermore
Who has redeemed my soul. [Refrain]
