I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He lift me up out of the pits
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
You 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

You sing it

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

Thanks a lot

All rise up, hallelujah, hallelujah, yeah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, yeah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, yeah
Goodnight
