These I Can Promise (Digital PDF)

Voicing: Unison upper or lower voices, and piano

Duration: 2' 10"


A lyrical setting of a beautifully simple romantic poem by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens). Suitable for concert use or for weddings.


I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.
But I can promise all my heart's devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
A love that's ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.
