The Promise – The Martins

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 thru 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 your time of need
My love will be the anchor that you can hold on to
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve 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 thru chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I’d be waiting right on the other side
And I did say I’ll dry every tear you’ve cried

‘Cause you know I made a promise that I’ve prepared a place
And someday 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 walking 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 thru
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you
Oh, this is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you

    • this is one of the songs that i treasure most n it lifts me up when am down n have faith that GOD can never let me suffer.

  1. When i feel so low the promise lightens my moods n brings my smile back,its a blessng to hear it,i love u guys,GOD bless!

  2. I’m on my knees even as I quote the lyrics to this great song, “The Promise.” God is just wonderful even when I’m undergoing trials ‘n tribulations! I thank ‘n love the good Lord “I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me.” Phil 4:13. It’s not me!

  3. This song renews my hope in the Lord and cheers me up whenever am feeling down.It is like ‘amazing grace’ to me – will never be old fashioned! God bless you Martins!

  4. Praise God whenever i hear this lylic..i hear the voice of Holy spirit of God speaking to me..it speaks when i really want to hear an answer to why im being tried..it heals my soul..the voice feels also like Jesus when He was on earth and how He used to encourage people He found wth issues..oooo i love u Jesus..AMEN
