I Could Never Promise You



Above is a working link for the Song

I Could Never Promise You, by Don Francisco, from the Live Concert. It is a perfectly legal download.

Link below is the same song, stored on the Survival Primer Web site. Same song, with the front audio narration from Don Francisco, punched up in volume, a little bit.



Third link is just the song itself, with no intro, and no applause at the end.



Friends of mine used the song in their wedding, years ago, and it was a great blessing.

Don Francisco’s intro

         This song talks about the fact that nobody has any idea what they are doing when they get married. Because you don’t.

         I mean, you can know the person three, four, five years and you don’t really know them until you get married. That’s just how it is.

         Nobody knows what life is going to bring them, five, ten, twenty, thirty years down the road. You don’t know how you’re going to change, you don’t know how your partner is going to change.

         All kinds of things could happen, things you never imagined could happen, and to promise someone, “I am going to love you, the rest of my life,” without knowing that you have the power of the Spirit of God inside you to make that commitment real, is really kind of foolish.

         But when you do know that, when you do know that His Spirit is inside you, then you can make that promise, because you know that God, and all of heaven, is going to help you back it up, and make both your lives something that is going to glorify God.

         And that is what this song is about.


I could never promise you on just my strength alone

That all my life I'd care for you and love you as my own

I've never known the future, I only see today

Words that last a lifetime would me more than I could say

But the love inside my heart today is more than mine alone;

It never changes, never fails, it never seeks its own.

And by the God who gives it and who lives in me and you,

I know the words I speak today are words I'm going to do.

So I stand before you now for all to hear and see

And promise you in Jesus' name, the love He's given me

Through the years on earth, and as eternity goes by

The life and love He's given us are never going to die



Page dedicated to my sister Gale, who I was raised with,

and my sister Pam, who I was not raised with,

and their husbands.  The LORD has been good to you.
