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!

Chorus:
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]
