14. Don’t Give Up - The William Singers

Please don’t give up
Oh Lord
(don’t give up)
Tonight
(don’t give up)
Oh no
(don’t give up)
Please
(don’t give up)

For if you hold out through the night
I know that joy will come
(don’t give up)
Oh yes it will
I know he
(don’t give up)
Wipe away
(don’t give up)
All your tears
(don’t give up)
I believe he will, I believe
He
(don’t give up)
Wipe away
(don’t give up)
All your tears
(don’t give up)
I know he will

For if you hold out through the night
I know joy
(don’t give up)
Gonna come in the morning
(don’t give up)

Blessed are those that are persecuted
For righteousness sake
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad
For great is your reward in Heaven

Oh, Please
(don’t give up)
Please
(don’t give up)
Woah, no
(don’t give up)

For if you hold out through the night
I know joy’s gonna come in the morning
(don’t give up)
Don’t you know
Joy’s gonna come in the morning
(don’t give up)
I believe joy
(don’t give up)
Is gonna come in the morning
(don’t give up)
Don’t you know, joy
Joy’s gonna come
