The Promise
.
By Randy Phillips

Verse 1
A hand of fear gripped the crowd
That day at Jarius’ home
When the doctor shook his head
And said, “She’s gone”
You could feel that mother’s heart break
You could hear them cry and mourn
Their little girl was only twelve years old
 
Verse 2
Somewhere in the distance
Outlined against the sun
There came a Man
With a mission from the throne
They said to look
“Somebody’s coming”
But what they did not know
It was their Promise
Coming down that dusty road
 
Chorus
There’s a Promise coming
Down that dusty road
From His holy hands
Healing virtue flows
He’s got the keys
To what you need
Death and hell
He will defeat
There’s a Promise coming
Down that dusty road
 
Verse 3
The wonder turned to mocking
When Jesus did speak
He said, “Your daughter’s not dead,
She’s just asleep”
Then He turned to the unbelievers
And He told them all “Go home”
They heard Him say
“Leave Me and death alone”

Verse 4
Then He laid His hands
Upon the child
He looked death right in the eye
He said “All power in Heaven
And earth belong to me”
And with a voice that sounds like thunder
He hurled death asunder
And then He said
“Little girl, rise and be healed”

Chorus
There's a Promise coming
Down that dusty road
From His holy hands
Healing virtue flows
He's got the keys
To what you need
Death and hell
He will defeat
There's a Promise coming
Down that dusty road

He's got the keys
To what you need
Death and hell
He will defeat
There's a Promise coming
Down that dustry road

Reprise - repeat last chorus
