Representative Text

Refrain:
We've come a long way, Lord,
a mighty long way.
We've come a long way, Lord,
a mighty long way.
We've borne our burdens in the heat of the day,
but we know the Lord has made the way.
We've come a long way, Lord,
a mighty long way.

1 I've been in the valley
and I prayed night and day.
I've been in the valley
and I prayed night and day.
I've been in the valley
and I prayed night and day,
And I know the Lord has made the way.
We've come a long way,
a mighty long way. [Refrain]

2 I've had hard trials
each and ev'ry day.
I've had hard trials
each and ev'ry day.
I've had hard trials
each and ev'ry day,
But I know the Lord has made the way.
We've come a long way,
a mighty long way. [Refrain]
