The Martins

The Martins are a Christian music vocal trio composed of three siblings: Joyce Martin Sanders, Jonathan Martin, and Judy Martin Hess. more »

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 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
