O lord, you brought us from a mighty long way,
A mighty long stay in the wilderness.
O lord, you brought us through the thick and thin,
Through the fire and wind to a better place.
You brought us out, to bring us in.
All those years longing for a land;
We would start, but too weak to stand,
And they took their toll. Tyrants of their soul.
With no place we could call our own;
With no song, lord, you heard our groan.
And you made a way, where there was no way.
Out of chains and the bonds of man.
Out of death, and the curse of sin,
Through the desert sand to the promise land.
