LYRICS: BETTER WORLD

There's gonna be
A better world someday
Where Glory will prevail
Voice by voice will be heard
There's gonna be a better world

There's gonna be
A better world I know
Where joy is born from
All our sorrow
Weepin' is no more
There's gonna be a better world

All the mountains
Are gonna tremble with peace
Rivers of compassion will flow
You know, I do not know how long it will be
But this I know

There's gonna be
A better world someday
Step by step
Freedom will take us all the way Well, I know, I'm sure
There's gonna be a better world
The mountains
Are gonna tremble with peace
Rivers of compassion will flow
I do not know how long it will be
But this I know

There's gonna be
A better world someday
Where Glory will prevail
Voice by voice will be heard
There's gonna be a better world
