I Promise Lyrics - Jaci Velasquez
Review The Song (11)
Johnny Ramirez and Jaci Velasquez
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
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

"The Love of the Lord is far more than our love for ourself" | Reviewer: Alyzza | 8/3/14
Indeed God is gracious that He accepts us for who we are. I could say His love for us is so great and unconditional.I like the song for it really reflects me now.. Just recently, I found how God made His way to me, to reach me and tell me that He prepared a love story for me. A love story that is specially made by Him and is never been told. I really found the Lord working on it when i experienced broken relationship and was heart broken. He was so close to me. I knew that.
This song reminds me of God's promises like that He would never leave nor forsake me; He is enough for me; there is always a time to reap and sow; everything good comes to those who wait; and He is always there for me..
In God's time - a time that God knows I'm ready - He would reveal the right person for me at the right circumstances. God is in control and I would hold on to his promises for me...
He is so faithful.. God loves us so much.. God answers prayers!
God bless us all. ;-)
A promise of purity | Reviewer: Kate | 7/14/14
Its really inspiring even when we have made mistakes in life, it still makes us have hope that God can still give us a new start and a new love story. I know that God is really re-writing my love story. Blessings!!!!
He knows me | Reviewer: Sibuibo daimai | 6/10/14
When i heard this song for the first time, it really reflect straight towards my life. Though iam nothing, poor, and young He knows my needs and provided me with handful of joy and happiness. Throught this song i realized myself to dedicate my life unto GOD.
without God we are nothing | Reviewer: lalay_lyn2@93 | 10/14/13
this song is so amazing... how beautiful it is. sobrng touched ako when i heard the song. it is true, that God knows our future. in Jeremiah 29:11 "for i know the plans I have for you". declares the Lord. "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".
so, we only need is to wait the right time and if it is well of God....
we love you so much omnipotent God.,,,,, we wait you until you come back.

WAITING SEASON | Reviewer: Rachel Labrador | 6/20/13
Now, I’m single. This song is one of the influential songs that inspired me to just enjoy this season of my life. When I was heartbroken, God is so close to me... It came to a point I didn’t live by bread alone but for every word that comes from the mouth of God. I’ve seek for God’s promises to my life. Healing is an everyday process and it I’ve received by faith. Truth is God has given me a grace to forgive which is the key to healing. And now, I am just as expectant of the Lord’s promises. God knows the desires of my heart. His timing is still the best! I will be surprise one day that my love story will be an inspiration to the young people. My shattered dreams and brokenness I had before will be used as a testimony of God’s amazing grace. God took away something from me but my faith says HE is going to replace it with something better.
Waiting creates a lot of discipline, discipline is painful but I know it’s going to just build my character (Remember how diamonds are formed? They are made at high temperature and pressure). Along this waiting process, God is forming the better me (more precious, more valuable).
This is a perfect season to look back for a while, figured out what were my learning/s from my past relationship. Every day, I have learned how to embrace God’s gift of life. The best days of my life were not behind me, but I know it is ahead of me.
Our ability and resilience to wait speaks of how much faith we have. If we have found faith unto the Lord, then, we need not to worry of our future. Just PRAY.
For all the single ladies out there, remember, we are the earth’s most precious treasure, therefore do not be anxious about anything... God will direct the treasure hunter we deserve. You will be pursued. You will be searched!
God has a perfect plan | Reviewer: fhefie | 4/21/13
I really like the song. Timing when my boyfriend broke-up with me.
i really love him, but he didn't give me a chance. I just cling to this song that God has prepared me someone better. Or God has another plan. If we are for each other let it be if not God only knows

I cant help myself crying,the first time i sang this song.how many times it made me cry.It relates to me a lot.It is very true that you will suffer the pains and lonliness for giving your love away w/out a righteous cause.
Ill share this song to my sister and to my friends for them to understand that God have better plans and its better to wait,to live in purity and keep it as a promise.
