03. Promise Keeper

Peace Be Still
by Hope Darst



 

Your vows a covenant unbroken
Youve made it known through history
Your love will never be unfaithful
Never walk out on me
Never walk out on me
I have no reason to doubt You
Who You have been Youll always be
And though the futures still unfolding
With everything Ive seen
How could I not believe

You are a promise keeper
Your word will never fail
My heart can trust You, Jesus
I wont be overwhelmed
My eyes are gonna see
Miracles and victories
You are a promise keeper
And Your word will never fail

You will return all thats been stolen
Theres nothing that You cant redeem
And though the storys still unfolding
With everything Ive seen
How could I not believe (You are)

You are a promise keeper
Your word will never fail
My heart can trust You, Jesus
I wont be overwhelmed
My eyes are gonna see
Miracles and victories
You are a promise keeper
\And Your word will never fail
(I know Youre word never fail)

Ill see Your goodness in the land of the living
Ill see Your goodness right here right now
You know the ending before the beginning
I know that You have worked all things out
(I know)

Ill see Your goodness in the land of the living
Ill see Your goodness right here right now (I will)
You know the ending before the beginning
I know that You have worked all things out
I know, I know

You are a promise keeper
Your word will never fail
My heart can trust You, Jesus
I wont be overwhelmed
My eyes are gonna see
Miracles and victories (cause)
You are a promise keeper
And Your word will never fail

Ill see Your goodness in the land of the living
Ill see Your goodness right here right now (oh, oh)
You know the ending before the beginning
I know that You have worked all things out
(Ill see it)
Ill see Your goodness (I see Your goodness)
In the land of the living (Oh, its all around me, God)
Ill see Your goodness right here right now
You know the ending (Ill trust You, God)
Before the beginning (I trust Youve worked it all out)
I know that You have worked all things out

Behind the Song:
"I think this song is probably one of my favorites because it holds truths that I deeply believe and live by - our God is a promise keeper and His word never fails. I havent always been so confident of this, and those were the seasons when I had to dig deep to figure out what I believed. My life alone, the journey of the record, is truly a picture of God keeping His promises. I felt like God told me when I was a young girl that I would be a singer and make albums. But just like life, there were a lot of twists and turns and things didnt go as I had planned. Twice I attempted to pursue a career as a recording artist and God shut it down and redirected my steps. Both times were filled with some disappointment, but the fear of being disobedient was always stronger. So I did what God asked and in those moments of obedience, I experienced the goodness of God in ways I didnt expect...left turns that felt like missteps constantly turned into places of healing, freedom, restoration, revelation, and confidence. The bridge of this song is one of my most favorite things to sing on the whole record because it says what I have had to live outIll see your goodness in the land of the living, Ill see your goodness RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW. What we see is a choice. We can look for Gods goodness in every situation of life or only see the bad. Its not always easy, but it is always fruitful. I have never seen God break His word. It didnt always happen in the way or time that I expected, but He has always done what He said he would do. There is no one more faithful than Him. And while some hard things will never make sense on this side of heaven, Im still confident that I will see the goodness of the Lord even here." - Hope Darst

Psalm 145:13 (NIV) The Lord is trustworthy in all He promises and faithful in all He does.

Psalm 27:13 (NIV) I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
