Jeff Black – How Long lyrics

Joseph was a humble child
Selfless in his soul
Spent his young days running
Down by the river
Where the holy water flows
Catfish jumping
Up to his knees in
Cool colors turning
And praying for his time to come

Time came through the garden there
With a lily in her hand
The world was changing
It was the first day he could mark down there
Where the boy becomes a man
Lord his heart was pounding
Up to their knees in
Cool colors turning
And into this world a child was born

How long
How long
Will the mystery remain
We will never be the same
And now what will we become
