To all my people in the struggle
You think God's forgotten about you
Here's some pain medicine
Let's go!
You're in your car
You at the house, on you job
Be encouraged, boo

I've been down so long
I've been hurt for so long
There were times I thought I would never see the break of day
It was hard for me to see your plan for me
And I tried to believe trouble won't last always
See, night after night (night after night, night after night)
I pray Lord don't take your joy from me
And then late one night (then late one night)
I read in your love letter that it's gonna get better

Don't cha know that
I've been looking for you?
I realized that nothing else will satisfy me
I'm so glad I found you
Now that I'm changed, no one can keep me away from you
Oh
You've been so good to us
You brought us a mighty long way
That's why we love ya

When my enemies tried to come for me
And they thought that my world was coming to an end
All the while you knew
That I would make it through
I feel closer to you now than when I first began
Jesus you are (Jesus you are, Jesus you are)
You are my sun right after the rain
Wherever you are (wherever you are)
I just wanna be near you
I'm so glad I can hear you

Don't cha know that
I've been looking for you?
I realized that nothing else will satisfy me
I'm so glad I found you
Now that I'm changed, no one can keep me away from you
Don't cha know that
I've been looking for you?
I realized that nothing else will satisfy me
I'm so glad I found you
Now that I'm changed, no one can keep me away from you
(Here we go now, here we go now
Don't stop now, let's go now, in the front now
In the back now, let's go now, ladies!)

Uh oh, uh uh oh (That's for the struggle)
Uh oh, uh uh oh (That's for the pain)
Uh oh, uh uh oh (That's for those dark nights)
Uh oh, uh uh oh (Come on and sing it wit' us, ya'll)

Jesus you are (Jesus you are, Jesus you are)
You are my sunlight after the rain
Wherever you are (wherever you are)
I just wanna be near you
I so glad I found you

Don't cha know that
I've been looking for you?
I realized that nothing else will satisfy me
I'm so glad I found you
Now that I'm changed, no one can keep me away from you
Don't cha know that
I've been looking for you?
I realized that nothing else will satisfy me
I'm so glad I found you
Now that I'm changed, no one can keep me away from you

Uh oh, uh uh oh (oh oh)
Uh oh, uh uh oh (oh oh)
Uh oh, uh uh oh (oh oh)
Uh oh, uh uh oh (oh oh)
