(Mavis Staples)

Well Lord you've done everything you've said
Everything that you said you would do
You gave us food to eat and our health and strength too
But we're livin' in such a mean old world
Now misery and sadness are everywhere
But sometimes it seems so hard to bear

Stay with us, don't leave us
Don't leave us, I know we'll make it
I know we'll make it

Now everything seems to be going wrong
But Lord I know you're gonna fix it before too long
These are the times oh Lord of war and hate
But oh you said that you'd surly make a way

Stay with us, don't leave us
Don't leave us, I know we'll make it
I know we'll make it

Well just as long as you are by my side
Oh just as long as you will be my guide
Gonna keep on trusting upward every round
Cause ain't nobody gonna turn me around

Stay with us, don't leave us
Don't leave us, I know we'll make it
I know we'll make it
Stay with us, don't leave us
Don't leave us, I know we'll make it
I know we'll make it
Stay with us, stay with us
Don't leave us, don't leave us
Don't leave us, don't leave us
I know we'll make it
I know we'll make it
