Praying for New Song to Support Adoption and Sanctity of Life: “A Promise is Stronger than Blood”

A Promise is Stronger than Blood quote

Please pray for the production of this new single to be released. The goal is to bring awareness to the sanctity of life, to support the beauty of adoption, and to give the song away to Christian adoption agencies to help encourage their ministries. I composed this song after being so moved by preaching from Romans 8 on the Doctrine of Adoption. It is a companion to the book, What is the Doctrine of Adoption? (P&R Publishing).

We are aiming for an Easter release, though the song will debut in Los Angeles at a performance at Valley Christian School on Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 with guest Cindy Gibbs. The song will also be sung with Cindy at the Reagan Center and Ranch, Friday, March 15, 2013, 4 PM. The song will be available on iTunes after that.

A Promise is Stronger than Blood

You may feel like you’re all alone

A cosmic orphan with no name, no home

You may feel untethered

Weak and worn and weathered

But I’ve got news for you

And it’s the Gospel truth

A Promise is stronger than blood

When the Promise is given by the Father above

A Promise is stronger than blood

And the Covenant of Grace

Is a beautiful place to call home

You may feel like an abandoned child

No mother or father, maybe running wild

You may be hiding from the pain

Inconsolably crying in the rain

But I have news for you

And it’s the Gospel truth

A Promise is stronger than blood

When the Promise is given by the Father above

A Promise is stronger than blood

And the Covenant of Grace

Is a mighty good place to call home

(instrumental)

A Promise is stronger than blood

When the Promise is given by Abba above

Through the blood of His Son

His grace has won

Many sons and daughters

And you’re one
