  • My Lord
    I have read this book so many times
    But nowhere can I find the page
    That chance, what I experience today has any grace

    Now I know that life was meant to be hard
    And that's how I learn to appreciate my God
    Though my courage made me try
    I can tell you I won't hide
    Because the footprints show you are by my side

    You can lie to a child with a smilin' face
    Tell me that color ain't about race
    You can cast the first stone, you can break my bones
    But you're never gonna break
    You're never gonna break my

    Faith and hope ain't yours to give
    Truth and liberty are mine to live
    You can steal a crown from a king
    Break an angels wings
    But you're never gonna break
    You're never gonna break my faith

    My Lord
    Won't you help them, help them
    Help them to understand
    That when someone takes the life of an innocent man
    Well, they never really won, and all they've really done
    Is set the soul free where it's supposed to be

    You can lie to a child with a smilin' face
    Tell me color ain't about race
    You can cast the first stone, you can break my bones
    But you're never, ever, ever
    You're never gonna break my

    Faith and hope ain't yours to give
    Truth and liberty are mine to live
    Steal a crown from a king
    Break an angels wings
    But you're never, ever, ever
    You're never gonna break my faith

    For those we lose before their time
    I pray that their souls will find the light
    I know that the day will surely come
    When His will, His will, will be done
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
    Yeah, yeah, oh yeah
    His will, will be, His will will be done
    (Never gonna break my faith)
    Oh yeah, His will will be done
    You're never gonna break my faith
    Oh no, you know you won't
    You're never, never, never
    Never, never, never, never, never
    Never, never, never, never, never, never
    Never gonna break my faith
    Oh you ain't gonna break my faith Writer/s: Andrea Ramada, Bryan Adams, Eliot Kennedy
