long time coming (holdin’ on) lyrics – winans

it’s been a long time comin’
but a change is gonna come
waiting through the evening
tell me when will i see the sun

it’s been a long time comin’
but a change is gonna come
i’ve waited through the evening
tell me when will i see the sun

looking back in retrospect
things i desired thought i’d never get
wanting my dreams to happen right away

but in your way the lesson you learned
patience must have her perfect turn
when you got low you could hear the spirit say

it’s been a long time comin’
but a change is gonna come
i’ve waited past the night
wonder when will i see the sun

satan tried to force it loose
friends came and said “what’s the use”
oh but i kept holdin’ on
not even knowing why

well, now you can speak from experience
if god says he hears, he certainly cares
even now you can hear the spirit cry

secrets the lord imparts
keep them close to you heart
don’t ever let them die
make them the apple of your eye
make them the apple of your eye
secrets

it’s been a long time comin’
but a change is gonna come
i’ve waited till the morning
now i finally see the sun

the message in this simple song
is to keep on holdin’
holdin’ on, holdin’ on
till you see the sun
you gotta keep on holdin’

holdin’ on, holdin’ on
till you see the sun just keep on
holdin’ on, till you finally see the sun
you gotta keep on

holdin’ on, holdin’ on
till you see the sun
it’s too late to give up now

god is going to answer your prayers
so you gotta keep on holdin’ on
it’s too late to give up now
just a little bit too late
