You can't hurry my God
No, no, no
You just gotta wait
You've gotta trust God and give him time
No matter how long it will take
But he's a God we just can't hurry
But he'll be there, don't you worry
I say he may not come when you want him,
But he's "right on time!"
You can't hurry my God
No, no, no
You just gotta wait
You've gotta trust God and give him time
No matter how long it will take
But he's a God we just can't hurry
But he'll be there, don't you worry
I say he may not come when you want him,
But he's "right on time!"
Well, brother Joe was sick so long
Until the flesh fell from his bones
While with his wife, cattle and children
Well everything he had was gone
Joe said "You put these aflictions upon me Lord,
Now come and see about me"
I said he may not come when you want him,
Bue he's "right on time!"
Well some say he's coming in the morning
And he's gonna make the journey by train
Or some say he'd be riding in a chariot
Shakin' like an angel wing
Well I don't know how soon God's coming!
But don't let him catch you with your wicked game, now
He may not come with we want him
But he's "Right on time!"
You can't hurry my God
No, no, no
You just gotta wait
You've gotta trust God and give him time
No matter how long it will take
But he's a God we just can't hurry
But he'll be there, don't you worry
I say he may not come when you want him,
But he's "right on time!"
Yes
