"YOU WON'T GO DOWN AT ALL"

Chorus
Hang on tight, just be sure you're right, and God won't let you fall,
Don't go down without a fight, and chances are, you won't go down at all. [No.]
To higher ground where you're safe and sound, He'll lift you if you call,
So don't let that goal out of sight, and you'll win by far, you won't go down at all.

Verse 1 RAP
At the wheel of a ship on troubled seas,
Where the howl of the wind spells no gentle breeze;
A mile of water beneath those angry waves,
The captain who lives is the captain who braves.
When all hope seems to be long gone,
To hit that stormy sea head on,
It makes the difference of just a close shave,
What would otherwise've been a deep and early grave. [May you rest in peace.]
Is that the time to let go of the wheel?
Say, "The storm's so bad, it can't be real!"
Or is it time to sail on, no matter how you feel.
[That's more like it-Yeah!]

Chorus
So hang on tight, just be sure you're right, and God won't let you fall,
And don't go down without a fight, and chances are, you won't go down at all.
To higher ground where you're safe and sound, He'll lift you if you call,
So don't let that goal out of sight, and you'll win by far, you won't go down at all.

Verse 2
If you were on the back of a bolting horse,
Like he was running the track of some obstacle course;
He's makin' turns you don't anticipate,
Looks like you and that horse are gonna separate,
Which could separate your bod from your soul
Unless you somehow get control.
If between you and flyin' steel shoes
Ain't nothing but thin, thin air,
Man, are you gonna say, "He wins, I lose!"
And throw your hands up in despair?
Or grip tight those reins despite the strain
When the going gets tough and the riding gets rough.

Chorus
[I tell you!]
Hang on tight, be sure you're right, and God won't let you fall,
And don't go down without a fight, and chances are....
To higher ground where you're safe and sound, He'll lift you if you call,
So don't let that goal out of sight, and you'll win by far....

No, no, no.
So don't let that goal out of sight, and you'll win by far, you won't go down at all.

Verse 1 (Cm7)RAP
At the wheel of a ship on troubled seas,
Where the howl of the wind spells no gentle breeze;
A mile of water beneath those angry waves,
The captain who lives is the captain who braves.

It makes the difference of just a close shave,
What would otherwise've been a deep and early grave. [May you rest in peace.]

Say, "The storm's so bad, it can't be real!"
