    Lyrics

    verse 1

    A hand of fear gripped the crowd
    That day at Jairus' home
    When the doctor shook his head
    and said she's gone
    You could feel that mother's heart break
    You could hear them cry and mourn
    Their little girl was only twelve years old

    Somewhere in the distance
    Outlined against the sun
    There came a Man on a mission
    From the throne
    They said "look somebody's coming"
    But what they did not know
    It was their Promise coming down
    that dusty road


    chorus

    There's a Promise coming down that dusty road
    From His holy hand healing virtue flows
    He's got the keys to what you need
    Death and hell He will defeat
    There's a Promise coming down that dusty road


    verse 2

    The wonder turned to mocking
    When Jesus did speak
    'Cause He said your daughter's not dead
    She's just asleep
    Then He turned to the unbelievers
    And He told them all "go home"
    They heard Him say
    "Leave Me and death alone."

    And then He laid His hand upon the child
    And He looked death right in the eye
    He said, "All power in Heaven
    and earth it belongs to me"
    And with a voice that sounds like thunder
    He hurled death asunder
    And He said, "My child, Rise, and be healed!"


    chorus

    There's a Promise coming down that dusty road
    From His holy hand healing virtue flows
    He's got the keys to what you need
    Death and hell He will defeat
    There's a Promise coming down your dusty road


    outro

    He's got the keys to what you need
    Death and hell He will defeat
    There's a Promise coming down your dusty road

    There's a Promise coming down your dusty road
