From the breaking of the dawn

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.

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.

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.

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.
