I am a promise by The Gaither Vocal Band





I am a promise,
I am a possibility
I am a promise with a capital "P";
I can be anything, anything God wants me to be...

You are a promise!
You are a possibility!
You are a promise with a capital "P"!
You are a great big bundle of potentiality!
And if you'll listen, you'll hear God's voice;
And if you're trying, he'll help you make the right choices
You're a promise to be anything He wants you to be!

You can go anywhere that he wants you to go,
You can be anything that he wants you to be --
You can climb the high mountain,
You can cross the wide sea,
You're a great big promise you see!

I am a promise,
I am a possibility
I am a promise with a capital "P"!
I am a great big bundle of potentiality!
And I am learning to hear God's voice and I am tryin'
To make the right choices;
I'm a promise to be anything God wants me to be!

So keep on list'ning, you'll hear God's voice,
And keep on tryin', He'll help you make the right choices --
You're a promise to be anything He wants you to be!
I'm a promise to be anything God wants me to be!
You're a promise to be anything, anything He wants you to be!

  1. Love this song, which my "Happy Songs" group sang back in the 70s! Tonight, we're "reprising" it for a women's gathering! Thank you for such an unforgettable piece! Mary

  2. Sang this to my two sons when they were very young. They are both very successful musicians. I'm now singing it to my grandson. He's only 2 months old, but hey, he needs to hear these lyrics.

  6. I learned this song as a kid. I'm now almost 40, and it came to mind a a day when I really needed reminding that I'm still growing in Christ. I know you already know this, but the spirit used your song to encourage my soul when I was young and in my middle age! Thanks!
