A friend sent me this song recently. I knew that I needed to publish the lyrics and the Martins singing it. I knew that I needed to send this to you!
I never said that I would give you silver or gold
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold
But I did say you’d never walk through this world alone
And I did say, don’t make this world your home
I never said that fear wouldn’t find you in the night
Or that loneliness was something you’d never have to fight
But I did say I’d be right there by your side
And I did say I’ll always help you fight
‘Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep
My grace will be sufficient in every time of need
My love will be the anchor that you can hold onto
This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you
I never said that friends would never turn their backs on you
Or that the world around you wouldn’t see you as a fool
But I did say like me, you’ll surely be despised
And I did say my ways confound the wise
I didn’t say you’d never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk through chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I’d be waiting right on the other side (yeah, yeah)
And I did say I’ll dry every tear you cry
‘Cause you know I made a promise that I’ve prepared a place
And some day sooner than you think you’ll see me face to face
And you’ll sing with the angels and a countless multitude
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you
So just keep on walkin’, don’t turn to the left or right
And in the midst of darkness, let this be your light
That hell can’t separate us and you’re gonna make it through
This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you,
oh This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you
It’s really something – I mean how close I feel to my brethren. I love all of you and I look forward to spending eternity with our precious Lord Jesus and with my brothers and sisters in Him!
