[Chorus:]
Every little thing is gonna be alright
Weeping can only last one night
You gotta endure till the morning sun
You're gonna win the race but you have to run
Trouble can never last always
Looks like I can see a brighter day
My brother, if you could just hold on
The Lord is gonna make a way I know
Every little thing is gonna be alright.

[Verse 1:]
Tye: The God that we serve is Lord of all
Thad: Of the big as well as the small
Tye: Yes, He's in love with everyone
Thad: No matter how many times we fall.
Tye: Every detail that entails your life
Thad: He's already worked it out.
Tye: I know that life get rough sometimes
Thad: But trust and never doubt
Tye: Yes, He sees that sometimes you cry
Thad: In the room when you're by yourself.
Tye: And when your kids need money just to bust a grub
Thad: He sees nobody is there to help
Tye: Even though sometimes you feel like giving up
Thad: And throwing in the towel... He brought you out many times before
Tye: Why should it be any different now?

Pre- Chorus:
All of my needs... He will supply
He knows the plans He has for my life
He's El Shaddai... He's more than enough
He's in control


[Verse 2:]
Tye: I know it seems like the Lord forgot
Thad: About all that you're going through
Tye: The doctor said that there may be something wrong
Thad: On top of that all your bills are due
Tye: And the kids are growing up so fast
Thad: They think that they are grown.
Tye: The job is talking 'bout laying you off.
Thad: You can't make it on your own.
Tye: Well, allow me to take the time right now.
Thad: To echo the words of Christ
Tye: Matthew 6:25
Thad: Take no thought for your life
Tye: So you might as well look to the hills
Thad: 'Cause your help is on the way... rejoice in the Lord and be glad
Tye: This is the day that the Lord has made.

[Pre-Chorus:]
All of my needs... He will supply
He knows the plans He has for my life
He's El Shaddai... He's more than enough
He's in control

[Chorus:]
Every little thing is gonna be alright
Weeping can only last one night
You gotta endure till the morning sun
You gonna win the race but you have to run
Trouble can never last always
Looks like I can see a brighter day
My brother, if you could just hold on
The Lord is gonna make a way I know
Every little thing is gonna be alright.
