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.
