I dont know how my mother walked her trouble down
I dont know how my father stood his ground
I dont know how my people survive slavery
I do remember, thats why I believe

I dont know how the rivers overflow their banks
I dont know how the snow falls and covers the ground
I dont know how the hurricane sweeps through the land
every now and then
Standing in a rainstorm, I believe

I dont know how the angels woke me up this morning soon
I dont know how the blood still runs thru my veins
I dont know how I rate to run another day
Standing in a rainstorm I believe

My God calls to me in the morning dew
The power of the universe knows my name
Gave me a song to sing and sent me on my way
I raise my voice for justice I believe
