I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song
How long to sing this song
How long...how long...how long...
How long...to sing this song

He set my feet upon a rock
And made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and fear

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song
How long to sing this song
How long...how long...how long...
How long...to sing this song

    These are psalms from david in desprete time trying to please god, regain favor, and beg god's forgiveness. Over time after david's adultry, god made david's son (with bathsheba, another mans wife) die from sickness. David's adulty with bathseba is the story theme behind "hallelujah" by lenard cohen. 40 is psalm 40 from the bible.

    God came into this person's life & changed them. He took them out of the lifestyle they were living & gave them a new, hopeful, & joyful life.
