The Promise

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!

LYRICS:

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!

MARANATHA!!
