I'm seeing lots of people looking sure of themselves
Never seem to say much
Feeling mighty cozy with their righteousness
But their Bible's still gathering dust
They've got a long way to go, such a long way to go
They've got a long way to go, such a long way to go

I see a lot of people working over time
Defining what grace can afford
Working at a standard they could never attain
Trying to gain their reward
They've got a long way to go, such a long way to go
Earning grace through manufactured rules
They've got a long way to go, such a long way to go

Chorus:
Till we understand the message of Christ
Till we learn to let Him work in our lives
We've got a long way to go, such a long way to go
Till we understand what love is about
Till we follow Him with never a doubt
We've got a long way to go, such a long way to go

I heard about a baby down in Galilee
Heard he had his own star
Everybody said that he was sure to succeed
But nobody knew how far
He had a long way to go, such a long way to go
Who'd of thought it'd start with swaddling clothes
He had a long way to go, such a long way to go

I heard about the garden of Gethsemane
Time to pull out and pray
They say that he was crying out in agony
"Father please take this cup away"
He had a long way to go, such a long way to go
Pure love hanging on a tree
He had a long way to go, such a long way to go

Repeat Chorus

Dreaming of the day when He will come again
See Him eye to eye
Looking for the dawning of eternity
Forever and ever with Jesus Christ
We'll have a long way to go, such a long way to go
We'll have a long way to go, such a long way to go
