The Martins - The Promise 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 (Hmm) 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 And 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 d**h 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
