Aretha Franklin Feat. Mary J. Blige And The Harlem Boys Choir – Never Gonna Break My Faith lyrics

My Lord, I have read this book so many times
But nowhere can I find the page that says
What I experienced today has any grace

Now I know that life is meant to be hard
That's how I learned to appreciate my God
Though my courage may be tried, I can tell you I won’t hide
Because the footprints show you were by my side

You can lie to a child with a smiling face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stone, you can break my bones
But you never gonna break, you never gonna break my faith

Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
Steal a crown from a king, break an angels wings
But you never gonna break, you never gonna break my faith

My Lord, won't you help them, help them, help them to understand
That when someone takes the life of an innocent man
Well, they never really won because all they've really done
Is set the soul free where it's supposed to be

You can lie to a child with a smiling face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stone, you can break my bones
But you never, you never gonna break my faith

Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
Steal a crown from a king, break an angels wings
But you never gonna break, you never gonna break my faith

For those we lose before their time
I pray their souls will find the light
I know that the day will surely come
When his will, his will, will be done
Yes, it will, alright

Never gonna break my faith
Never gonna break my faith
You never gonna break my faith
