I’ll stand by the promise written 30th July 2010 by Jokpeme Joseph Omode
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
I’ll stand by the promises of God.
Though it tarries,
Though I am mocked,
Though I am tossed to and from,
Though temptation almost win me
And it even tried to lock me up in bondage,
Yet I will not give up.
Oh! I often sit and ponder,
When the sun is sinking low
Where shall yonder  future find me?
Shall I be among the living?
Shall I mingle with the free?
Where so ever my path be leading,
Savior, keep my heart with thee.
When the whole world shakes with terror,
When the sky bursts into flame,
And even when the shades of life are falling
And the hour has come to die,
I’ll stand by Your promise without letting go.
No matter the stance,
No matter the deeds,
No matter the words,
No matter the actions,
No matter the decisions,
I’ll stand and never let go.
Though the road is narrow,
Full of many dangers,
I’ll not let go because you are with me.
