We shall not be moved
We shall not be moved
Just like a tree standing by the water side
Oh, we shall not be moved

Well I said we shall not be moved
Well I said we shall not be moved

Just like a tree standing by the water side
Oh, we shall not be moved

We shall not be moved
We shall not be moved
We shall not be moved
We shall not be moved

Just like a tree standing by the water side
Oh, we shall not be moved

Goodnight

    This is a simple old gospel song
    That has a suggestion to us of
    Remaining steadfast
    No matter what turmoil and hard times come around us.
    So there may be many times in the coming days, when you feel like you cannot stand tall and confront things as they come to you.
    Remember this song and sing it to yourself.
    “Just like a tree that’s standing by the water side,
    I shall not be moved”.
    God is always with you.
