My promises are nothing
Compared to yours, O Lord!
I say, “I will do this,” but never do it
But not you, the One whom I trust!
You say, “I will live among you,”
And you do.
You say, “I will keep my word,”
And your promises hold true
Your words become life to my dead bones!
They are sweet songs to my deaf ears.
Who else is like you? Who else can say, “I will redeem you. My promises will surpass your weaknesses!”?
Only the Lord can do this
Only Jesus, the spotless lamb
Can make right what I have made wrong
How beautiful are these truths!
May I hide them forever in my heart
And cherish this undeserving grace!
