I Promise

I really love this song by Jaci Velasquez, put out when she was sixteen years old on her album "Heavenly Place". Last night I was listening to it as I was falling asleep, and I felt such a peace knowing that God has my life in His hands, that all I have to do is trust in Him and follow His Word, and HIS wonderful plan will unfold.

~ Lord, You know my heart
And all my desires
And the secret things I'll never tell
Lord, You know them well

Though I may be young
I see and understand
That at times like sheep we go astray
And things get out of hand

Chorus:
So I promise to be true to You
To live my life in purity
As unto You
Waiting for the day
When I hear You say
Here is the one I have created
Just for you

Until then, O Lord
I will be content
Knowing that true love
Will come someday
It will only come from You

‘Cause I have seen the suffering
That loneliness can cause
When we choose to give our love away
Without a righteous cause

Chorus
So I promise to be true to you
To live my life in purity
As unto You
Waiting for the day
When I hear You say
Here is the one I have created
Just for you ~

I've never heard this song, but the lyrics are great! I'll have to get it on a CD. Do you have her newest CD "Love Out Loud"? I really like Jaci's songs!
Blessings,
