"You Gave Me A Promise" as written by and Glenn Drennen Dawn Richardson (22103)....
The waves are crashing down on me
But I know this cannot be the end be the end
Right now I feel like copping out
Will You hold me up If I just say that I will stay?

I will hold on to this hope that I have
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise
I?ll push through this moment, I?ll never give up
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise

I'm so tired that I can't stand
But I know that time will heal this heart, heal this heart
With every door that's slamming shut
A new one?s there to lead me where You are, where You are

I will hold on to this hope that I have
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise
I?ll push through this moment, I?ll never give up
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise

You, You call out to me
You're just out of reach but I'm closing in
I'm still going, still believing in Your word

I will hold on to this hope that I have
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise
I?ll push through this moment, I?ll never give up
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise

I will hold on to this hope that I have
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise
I?ll push through this moment, I?ll never give up
You gave me a promise, You gave me a promise

    General CommentTo me, this song is about perservering in the toughest times.

    "I'm so tired that I can't stand" -- I know that we've all had moments like this. To be so fed up, to be so broken and exhausted from fighting off whatever is causing the suffering...

    And then to remember that God gave us a promise that He loves us, and while we're on earth we'll face trials and tribulations BUT HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD. Read John 16:33. I live by this verse.

    God bless you all.
