As any of you who know me will no doubt realise, I am a great fan of the songs of Keith and Kristyn Getty. They have provided the church with so many songs that have God- honouring lyrics and good, singable tunes. They are a real blessing to the church. They collaborated on a number of them with Stuart Townend, another writer whom the church is very blessed to have
One of the songs that Keith and Stuart wrote is about the Scriptures, and how reliable God’s word is. This is an important theme for the present time, as many people even within evangelical circles seem to have lost confidence in the Bible, or at least don’t see it as being all – important.
In this song, we are reminded that it is God’s word that can be relied upon to sustain in difficult times, or times when we feel that we are away from God. His promises are certain and secure, and we can have confidence that they are revealed to us in his word.
There is nothing better than to know that we can completely trust and rely upon God, and we can see that clearly in the Bible.
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.
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.
Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
