The Promise True And Grand-Booker White
Cross-note with slide, w/Miss Minnie, vocal

I have read of the promise true and grand
A wonderful place, this heavenly land,
Where all the redeemed shall dwell with Christ eternally,
Where never a trouble we shall rue,
No temple, for God's place holds us all,
This promise was made for you and me, how long will it be?

How long blessed Lord, oh will it be?
Until it shall be we reach that day?
How long till I feel that fond embracing,
There shall behold with His smiling face-a
Up at that lovin' hea'enly home beyond the sea,
How long must I toil, here below,
How long must strive, strive with the fold,
How long till we view that promised land,
And join-a with the snow white angels' band
Lord-a hear our plea, how long will it be?

Said, in that land there is no light,
Where Jesus the Lamb will be the night,
The River of Life (from) his golden throne will flow so free,
And in the blessed city we are told,
There the streets are paved with the purest gold,
This promise is made for you and me, how long will it be?

How long blessed Lord, oh will it be
Until it'll be we reach that day?
How long till we view that promised land,
And join-a with the snow white angels' band
Lord-a hear our plea, how long will it be?

There the tears from our eyes will fall no more,
And sufferin' too will all be o'er,
We shall rapture we shall praise that blessed Lamb of Calvary,
We'll meet our deliverers on the strand,
We shall join them and clasp them by the hand,
This promise is made for you and me, how long will it be?

How long blessed Lord, oh will it be?
Until it'll be we reach that day?
How long till I feel that fond embracing,
And shall behold His smiling face-a
Up at that lovin' hea'enly home beyond the sea,
How long must I toil, oh here below,
How long blessed Lord, oh will it be?
How long till we view that promised land,
And join-a with the snow white angels' band
Lord-a hear our plea, how long will it be?
