How Long? Not Long!
Language: English 
How long? Not long
before I reach the promised land,
How long? Not long
before I make it to the Kingdom.

Just a few more weary days
before I reach the promised land.
There to sing His endless praise,
I'm on my way to the Kingdom.

Trials may seem hard sometimes
before I reach the promised land.
But there eternally sublime,
Yes, when I make it to the Kingdom.

Troubles cannot last always
before you reach the promised land.
So lift your head and count the days
before you make it to the Kingdom.

How long? Not long...
