Where’s her promise to never leave now?
What assurance was there in his words?
Did forever mean anything beyond that time?
Careless words, empty words; nothing to behold now
But it was love and so it made all the sense
It made sense when she called me her king
It was great privilege to be a king in love
To say nothing on earth would separate us
But they were just words, careless words
Empty words spoken in the language of love
They were words of commitment and sacrifice
Great inspiring speeches but only mere words
And what would mere mortals achieve by words?
Where is she now, where are those words now?
I know, they were just words; careless and empty
So what’s in a word, as careless as it come?
How can I build a future by words of mortal men?
I want to believe it when she speaks in love
Yet I cannot help to know its just another word
Careless empty words spoken by caring souls
What a difference it makes to listen to Jesus
To listen from his Word which is true and living
To know that it’s not just another word;
Careless and empty.
But true, living and everlasting Word of God.
I want more of this Word
I want the assurance it gives me;
A true hope that will never fade
Not a careless empty word
But the living Word of my Lord and Savior
