Frances Matney Woodard (1922 – 1991) was born in Huntington, Texas the eldest daughter of a Methodist minister. After working for the US Military during World War 2, she attended and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After marrying, she settled in Longview, Texas where she was very active as a Sunday school teacher, youth & children’s choir director, church secretary, choir member, songwriter, and soloist at her Church and throughout East Texas.

She was a Spirit-filled believer who loved the Lord. She was a prolific writer who dedicated her last years in this world to writing songs and poetry, many that were never distributed or published outside the family. I am very proud to share some of her writing with the world. I pray that it blesses you. — Harrison Woodard



Promises Promises

By Frances Matney Woodard

(1922 – 1991)

Promises, promises, promises –

God has made us promises.

So many promises –

He doesn’t break His word

Like people do here in this world –

I can depend on him to keep His promises.

He promises to love me, love me.

To forgive my sins and cancel them

To watch over me in trouble

To provide what I need.

Promises, promises, promises

And He always keeps His promises

My Lord will keep His promise to you.
