Lyrics
This too shall pass away
The longest night becomes the day
Hold up your head and say
This too shall pass away

Sometimes I'm frighten of what I'll discover
Sometimes I feel like I'm always passed over
Sometimes I think I won't find my place in the sun
When there's no refuge in sleeping
When I am so close to weeping
Then I remember the truth I was told by someone
This too shall pass away
The longest night becomes the day
Hold up your head and say
This too shall pass away
Whoa, this too shall pass away
Whoa, this too shall pass away

Sometimes you tell me you're weary in spirit
Sometimes you cry out and no one can hear it
People you trust can sometimes be strangely unkind
Though you are caught up in grieving
Though you could give up believing
Don't you lose sight of the answer you helped me to find
This too shall pass away
The longest night becomes the day
Hold up your head and say
This too shall pass away

This too shall pass away
Out of the darkness, whoa, whoa, whoa
The clouds will always part the moment faith is in your heart
So let me hear you say
This too shall pass away
Shall pass away
This too shall pass away
If you believe the truth will set you free
So let me hear you, let me hear you say
This too shall pass away
Remember truth was told by someone
This too shall pass away
And you're weary in spirit
God will hear it
If you believe, it will be free
Yes, it will be free
