FAITH PROMISE -- you asked for. I'll give what I can,
But I must make a living -- I'm only one man!
You know all the pressures that come upon me?
The utilities and taxes and rent, don't you see?
Then there's clothing and food and up-keep on the car;
As a father and husband, I must be "up-to-par."
These were my thoughts in church last Sunday,
And I said, "No more than my tithe can I pay."
But then it seemed Jesus sat down beside me,
And spoke ever so softly and helped me to see
The word Faith before Promise -- what a difference it made!
It's believing He will supply the amount to be paid.
So I'll make that FAITH PROMISE, knowing He'll make a way
I feel better already -- what a wonderful day!
Not for adventure,
Travels the world,
But the adventure
love and mercy and grace
majesty and power and greatness
And clinics rise,
Of God's kingdom
Is freely given
And hour by hour,
Day by day,
Month by month,
Year by year,
Around the world.
