Promises are honourable

Particularly when they are kept;

When the result sees lasting fruit

With an outcome we won’t forget.

God’s promises are faithful indeed

And will always come to pass,

For His love for us exceeds expectations

It is pure and it will last.

He promises to wipe our sins

And although they’re scarlet in nature,

They shall be made white as snow

To place us in right stature.

Although our transgressions are like crimson

They shall become as wool,

So we’re washed and sanctified indeed

And no longer considered a fool.

It’s a monumental promise

When we reason with the Lord,

And we understand His saving grace

Through His sacred precious word.

Our sins are red like crimson

But through repentance and obedience,

The moral law is stamped in our heart

To deal with all lies and all pretence.

Our sins required Christ’s precious blood

As it’s the only shade of red,

That’s accepted in this equation

So we’re resurrected from the dead.

Resurrected to new life

Evident of a new start;

With the sacrifice of a broken spirit

In conjunction with a contrite heart.

Along with the incorruptible beauty

Of a gentle and quiet spirit,

That’s discerning and is wise

With no corruptive motives in it.

Not perfect but certainly growing in grace

And in maturity too,

As we walk in holiness and in reverence

And in our convictions to be true.

Covered by Christ and His purity

Is what God requires to see;

To appease His anger and His wrath

When from sin we are set free.

Both snow and wool are pristine

They’re pure in all their ways;

It’s the way God wants to see our soul

As we commune with Him each day.
