down, but I ain’t no mo’, cause “I’M MOVING UP.”
Lawdy, Lawd, never seen it so bright,
Cause only you God, pulled me from the night!
I’M MOVING UP with courage and strength from above…
I’ll journey on through this land with lots of love
Oh yes, Lawd, “I’M MOVING UP!”
Because of You, take my hand and guide me still,
For there’s work yet to be done, over yonder hill.
There’s a bright future for Old Black Me…
But with faith in You taint hard to see,
As the clouds roll back to brighten my track. Cause “I’M MOVING
I’M MOVING UP to a better day!
Trusting and depending on You Lawd…to pave the way.
I’ll fight on to very end – this rough old road won’t
It’ll straighten out, as I sing, shout and pray for a brighter tomorrow,
Free from too much sadness and so much sorrow.
Yes, “I’M MOVING UP”…Thanks be to God for strength
to carry through
Lord God, I’ll always depend on You!
Oh, yes! “I’M MOVING UP!” Never, never giving up!
One day, hopefully, may I hear You say, “Well done.”
Then I’ll know, the Victory is won!
