I been in de storm so long, chillun,

Oh, gimme little time to pray.
I been in de storm so long,

I been in de storm so long,
Oh, gimme little time to pray.

Oh, let me tell you, Mother,
how I come ‘long,
Oh, gimme little time to pray,
With a hung down head and a achin’ heart,
Oh, gimme little time to pray.
‘Cause I [Refrain]

Now when I get to Heaven
I’ll take my seat,
Oh, gimme little time to pray,
An-a cast my crown at my Jesus’ feet,
Oh, gimme little time to pray.
‘Cause I [Refrain]
