the promise lyrics – talley trio

a hand of fear gripped the crowd
that day at jairus’ 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

somewhere in the distance
outlined against the sun
there came a man on a mission
from the throne
they said “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 hand healing virtue flows
he’s got the keys to what you need
death and h*ll he will defeat
there’s a promise coming down that dusty road

the wonder turned to mocking
when jesus did speak
’cause 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.”

and then he laid his hand upon the child
and he looked death right in the eye
he said, “all power in heaven
and earth it belongs to me”
and with a voice that sounds like thunder
he hurled death and h*ll he will defeat
oh there’s a promise coming down your dusty road

(chorus)
