40 Lyrics

Found On:


Love: Live From The Point Depot (2004)


The Complete U2 (2004)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"40" (live from Point Depot)

"So then we had this slightly unusual piece of music and we said, 'OK, what are we going to do with it?' Bono said, 'Let's do a psalm.' Opened up the bible and found Psalm 40. 'This is it. Let's do it.' And within forty minutes we had worked out the last few elements for the tune, Bono had sung it, and we mixed it. And literally, after finishing the mix, we walked out through the door and the next band walked in." - The Edge, U2 By U2 2006

I waited patiently on the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He lift me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long, how long
How long to sing this song

He set my feet upon a rock
He made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and hear

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song
How long to sing this song
How long, how long, how long
How long to sing this song

Again, thank you for coming
I'd like to thank Edge and Adam and Larry for letting me be in their band

All praises
Hallelujah, hallelujah, yeah, hallelujah
Love, love
He's found it and it's real
Love is come along
How long, how long, how long
Goodnight
