I can make it if the sun don’t shine
I can make it if the river don’t flow my way
I can make it if the birds don’t sing
I can make it if the bees don’t sting
I can make it if the babies don’t cry
And if the children die… and the young don’t get old
I can make it!
I can make it if I can’t see what’s before me
I can make it if I can’t utter a mere word
I can make it if my taste abandon me
I can make it!
I can make it if I was placed in a hole without two or more…
even if they closed the door
I can make it
I can make it if I was treated cruel and inhumane
If I was afflicted and convicted
If I was hated by all but one
I can make it
I can make it because God said
If you just believe and trust in me…
Yes, my son… you can make it!
