Linda Davis — Make It Through lyrics

(Skip Ewing/Tim Mensy)

Well the sun beats down and the sand gets hot
Where I break my back hauling endless rock
For a man made God
I really don't believe in
I shoulder the rope and I bear the strain
Wipe the salt from my eyes and ignore the pain
Though I know when I fall
Another whip is coming
When I feel my body going down
And there's nothing I can do
I know if I keep my faith in you
I'm gonna make it through
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/linda-davis-make-it-through-lyrics.html ]
I'm a prisoner here in this hall of kings
I'm gold I'm jewels I'm a diamond ring
To be given as a token of God's affection
The law says I'm their property
But my heart and my soul belong to me
They can hold me but I'll never be in their possession
When I feel my body going down
And there's nothing I can do
I know if I keep my faith in you
I'm gonna make it through

Through the doubt
Give me strength to lead them out
Give them faith to follow me
Guide us through the sea

So help me God I'm a common man
With the lives of thousands in my hands
As I carry them into the land you promised
And when I feel my body going down
And there's nothing I can do
I know if I keep my faith in you
I'm gonna make it through

I know if I keep my faith in you
We're gonna make it through
