CHORUS: Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all that you're going through everyday
From being tempted to resented and you need direction
Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all of the money spent that you make
But the righteous won't be forsaken
You just keep on pressin'

VERSE: I might get personal so protect your toes
Cause i feel i need to let my heel down
For we do all that we can to
Treat our NEIGHBOR right but
Sometimes we wanna scream
We try to turn the other cheek
And stay on our knees and keep our tempers under control, but you know
Every now and then you wanna tell somebody what they mean

CHORUS: Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all that you're going through everyday
From being tempted to resented and you need direction
Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all of the money spent that you make
But the righteous won't be forsaken
You just keep on pressin'

VERSE: Working that Job so hard from dusk to dawn
To keep a decent roof overhead
But your debt is evergrowing
Even working over time
And sometimes you wanna scream
But God knows the pain is there and how much we can
Bear we didn't come this far to be left alone
That's why we gotta be strong for the prayers of the righteous will availeth many things

CHORUS: Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all that you're going through everyday
From being tempted to resented and you need direction
Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all of the money spent that you make
But the righteous won't be forsaken
You just keep on pressin'

HOOK: For the trials that we see are here to make us stronger
Grab onto his hand and live in fear no longer
Like a tree planted by the rivers of water
We shall not be moved
Stand firm in your service
Your eyes will be dried in the morning

CHORUS: Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all that you're going through everyday
From being tempted to resented and you need direction
Sometimes heaven seems so far away
With all of the money spent that you make
But the righteous won't be forsaken
You just keep on pressin'
