Song Lyrics

This edit of the song has not yet been released. Lyrics provided below are based on the version appearing on “Madison Square Garden 09-28-1997“ released by Wolfgang’s Vault, and the final version appearing on The Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Edition is expected to be a different edit, but based on the same starting material.

I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He lift me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long, how long
How long… to sing this song

He set my feet upon a rock
You made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and hear

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song
You sing it…

How long to sing this song
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long, how long
How long… to sing this song

Thanks a lot

Alright let’s go

Hallelujah, uh-huh
Hallelujah, hey-hey
Hallelujah, huh-uh-uh
Hallelujah, hey-hey
Hallelujah, huh-uh-uh
Hallelujah, hey-hey…
Good night
