This Is The Way I Long Have Sought

This is the way I long have sought
Glory, Hallelujah!
And mourned because I found it not,
Praise ye the Lord!

Praise the Lord, O, my soul!
Glory, Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord, O, my soul!
Praise ye the Lord!

The way the Holy Prophets went,
The road that leads to banishment. [Chorus]

This day my soul has caught new fire,
I feel that heaven is drawing nigher. [Chorus]

This war is all my soul’s delight,
I love the thickest of the fight. [Chorus]

The hottest fire has just begun,
And who will stand and never run? [Chorus]

We’ll tell to sinners all around,
What a dear Saviour we have found. [Chorus]

I have the witness now within,
The blood now cleanseth from all sin. [Chorus]

O, hallelujah to the Lamb!
He makes and keeps me what I am. [Chorus]
