Man Of His Word

This song is by Bob Carlisle and appears on the album Butterfly Kisses (Shades Of Grace) (1997).

Original video
In the final days of summer, 1944
With just a preacher and a witness
And a humble band of gold
They set out to find the future
Not a penny to their name
Still with all the unknown danger
She knew her heart was safe

'Cause He was a rock
He was the one that she ran to
And when He said the word "forever"
She knew that it was true
He wasn't a saint
But He was saint enough for her
He was a man, a man of His word

In the final days of summer, 1964
Found a family undivided
Divided on the war
Turning son against his elder
Debating wrong and right
He was the image of his father
Though they would not see eye to eye

Still He was a rock
He was the one the boy ran to
Cause' when He said the words "I love you"
He knew that it was true
And even in the worst of storms
There was an anchor in His world
He was a man, a man of His word

Clutching a strong belief in the bible
Through all the sweetness in his life
And the bitterness of war
He knew what God had made him for

In the final days of summer, 1994
Surrounded by his family
And the presence of the Lord
He set out to find his future
The one he'd always known
He didn't want to leave his family
But he knew deep in his soul
The Lord had called him home

'Cause He was the rock
He was the one the man ran to
And when He said the words "forever"
He knew that it was true
He wasn't a saint
He is the one the saints bow to
Receiving a man, a man of His word

He was the one that I ran to
'Cause when He says the word "forever"
I know His word is true
He isn't a saint
He is the one the saints bow to
Come to the man, the man of His word
