You’re my Promised Land

“In all my grievin’, I’m still believing You’re my promised land.”   I love this sentence of the song, “Promised Land”.  In fact, I like everything about this song.  My soul is soothed by this song– the music, the singing, the lyrics.  it starts out wondering what I often wonder—“Where’s my promised land?”, and then ends up proclaiming God–You are my promised land.

So often in the hardness of life, I forget, I have a soft place to land–that place is God–He is my promised land.  He never promised me an easy life, but He did promise that He would walk with me through the difficulties.  So, “through all these seasons, I’m still believing You’re my promised land.”


Head down as I punch this clock

The hours roll they never stop

And I can’t ever seem to get ahead

Always tryin’ to do what’s right

The straight and narrows getting tight

Don’t know how much longer I can stand

And I’m wonderin’ yeah I’m wonderin’ where’s my promised land

Out here on this dessert road

It’s hot as fire but I’ve grown cold

Circlin’ like a plane that never lands

And even though the questions change

The answers always stay the same

Maybe someday I will understand

So I’m wonderin’, got me wonderin where’s my promised land

Yeah I’m wonderin’ still I’m wonderin where’s my promised land

Well I’ve run this earth for many years

And there’s one thing I know

There’s nowhere on this side of heaven

Where streets are made of gold 

I’ve long laid down my grand illusions 

Lookin toward the day that I’ll be home

I won’t give up on this race

Broken but I still have faith 

That this old life is all part of a plan

And I can feel it in my soul, one day I’ll stand before the throne

With nothing left but hope in these 2 hands

Through all these seasons, I’m still believing, You’re my promised land

In all my grievin’ I’m still believin’, You’re my promise land.
