Thanks Ron!
But I can't find the lyrics there and as a non-native speaker I don't get all the words.

Thanks for bringing Susan Werner to my attention. I like her "agnostic gospel."

There are two different performances of this song on YouTube. This one has better audio. Here's my transcription:


I WILL HAVE MY PORTION
Susan Werner

1. Some would say that time has passed me by.
Some would say the wells have all run dry.
Some would say that's how it has to be.
So some would say, but I beg to disagree,

CHORUS: 'Cause I know good fortune waits for me somewhere.
I will have my portion. I will have my share.
I'll keep my feet in motion till they carry me there.
I will have my portion. I will have my share.

2. 'Cause I do believe there's a harvest in the field.
I do believe there's truth to be revealed.
I do believe there's treasure to be found,
And I do believe there's enough to go around, CHORUS.

3. Somewhere there's a blessing that will bear my name.
Sooner or later it's coming to me just the same.
I can't wait to see what's set aside for me.
With every new sunrise, I'll keep my eyes wide open, CHORUS.

[From "The Gospel Truth," 2007.]
