GUEST,Melissa Lyr Req: Surely I Will, Lord (Albert E. Brumley) (20) RE: Lyr Req: Surely I Will, Lord (Albert E. Brumley) 18 Aug 10


Wow,my grandmother taught me and my cousins this song and Roughside of the Mountain before she past. She said it was inportant to learn these songs. These songs would bring strength and comfort in times to come. Well time has moved forward and I am the only one who still remembers those songs and even I have trouble with Roughside of the Mountain, but Surely I Will is a song that keeps me. I came here looking for some information on this powerful song and found the entry on 22 June08, to be the closest to what my grandmother taught us. So here are my lyrics via Geneva( grandma):

I started on this journey
Along time ago
So many pains and heartaches
But I promised the Lord I'd go

With my sword and my shield
I'm gonna stand on the battle field
And if any body makes it
Surely, I will

Chorus
If the teacher makes it
Surely, I will;surely, I will; surely, I will
If the preacher makes it
Surely, I will;surely, I will; surely, I will

Well you know Im bound for mount zion
Way out on the hill
And if any body makes it
Surely I will

Repeat Chorus as many times as the Spirit allows.

Thanks for this forum!
