Words: Michael W. Smith and Wayne Kirkpatrick
Music: Michael W. Smith

(Tell me) How long will we grovel at the feet of wealth and power
(Tell me) How long will we bow down to that golden calf
How long will be too long
(Tell me) How long will we curtsy to the whims of new religion
How long will we water down the truth
'Til truth is no more
How long will be too long
Chorus:
The power of faith and love
Can change the stuff we're made of
But still we wait
(Tell me) How long will be too long

(Tell me) How long will we drink from the chalice of indifference
Neither be hot or be cold
Can a sober soul know
How long will be too long

Chorus:
Is there not more to us
Than cursed dust to dust
I feel my hope fading
How long will be too long

How long will be too long

(Tell me) How long will we travel from the ways that God intended
Won't it all tumble down if His holy wrath comes
How long will be too long

Chorus:
The power of faith and love
Can change the stuff we're made of
When will it be too late
How long will be too long
How long will be too long
How long will be too long
