CHORUS #1

TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE         TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

LET a LITTLE TIME             DON’T YOU KNOW YOU CRAWL

PASS ON BY                    BEFORE YOU CLIMB

TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE            TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

THROUGH THE VALLEY’s LOW    THIS WORLD WILL COME to PASS   

andMOUNTAINS HIGH            IN GOD’s SWEET TIME   

VERSE #1

IN the QUICKSAND               BITTER HEARTS

OF SINKING TIME               THAT CRUELLY BLEED

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL           HOPE’s DELUSIONS

of WASTE and DECLINE           HIDE AN ARROGANCE MEEK

CHORUS #2

TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE             TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

THOUGH the CONSTANT HURT       PARADISE SOME CLAIM

and PAIN WE HIDE                   HIDES a LIFE of CRIME

TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE             TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

DON’T YOU KNOW the FACTS        TRAPPED WE ARE IN FLESH

THIS WORLD HIDES                 SPACE and TIME

VERSE #2

A SLIPPERY SLOPE                  GOSSIP, PORN

OF SORDID SLEEZE                 and CRIME ENTERTAIN             

WE SEEM TO LIKE IT                EVER GROWING

WHEN SOMEONE BLEEDS           WITH SHRINKING SHAME                                       

VERSE #3

KNOW IT ALLS                     THERE’s a FAMINE

BUT NEVER SURE                   OF STARVING MINDS

FOR SUSPICIOUS MINDS             A WORLD LACKING

THERE IS NO CURE                  IN WISDOM WISE

VERSE #4

LIFE’s LURID TRIALS               The STORM OF LIFE                       

LIFE’S COURT of PAIN              The CLOUDS ABOVE

The VERDICT TWISTED             OBSCURE GOD’s LIGHT

SOCIAL JUSTICE FEIGNED          OBSCURE GOD’s LOVE

CHORUS #3

TRY A LITTLE PATIENCE           TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

DON’T YOU KNOW                DON’T FORGET GOD’s PLAN

THE LORD WILL COME IN TIME    HIS CONTROL SUBLIME

TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE           TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

DON’T YOU KNOW                BEYOND TIME’s SHADOW

HIS TRUTH                       WE’LL SEE HIS LIGHT 

HIS WORD IS TRIED

TRY A LITTLE PATIENCE           TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

SEE THROUGH THIS WORLD’s      YOU KNOW THERE’s MORE to LIFE

SHALLOW CREEDS                THAN WHAT YOU SEE

ANOTHER WORLD

MOST CANNOT SEE

WE WANDER BLIND

WITH EYES THAT SEE

GRACE UNDER PRESSURE

ANXIETY

STORM and STRESS

INSECURITY

THE VULTURES CIRCLE

OVER DEATH’s DRAIN

THE PREY IS CERTAIN

MORTALITY THE HOPE IS VAIN

THE VERDICT CERTAIN

LIFE’S COURT of PAIN 

SECURE WE ARE

JUSTICE STRAINED

HYPOCRITES a’HIDING

UNCONVINCING DISGUISE

LIFE’s HORRORS

ARRESTED IN CRIME

BEAUTY SUBLIME

TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

BEAR LIFE’s HEAVY CROSS

APATHY BLIND

DETACHED WE ARE

DETACHED WE ARE FROM LIFE’s

DOWN the DRAIN of EASE

GOSSIP  GREASED

BY INSECURITY

MISFORTUNES PLEASE

TRY A LITTLE PATIENCE             TRY a LITTLE PATIENCE

DON’T YOU KNOW                  DON’T FORGET GOD’s PLAN

THE BLIND LEAD the BLIND
