Does anyone know the lyrics nd chords to song on Jerry Garcia Band album of 1990. Other songs on this album are Dear Prudence, Waiting for a Miracle and Don't Let Go. The song I'm looking for is an old spiritual I think. Last lkine is "When we make it to the promised land. Also lots of "brothers and sisters" and positive vibe.

Sisters and Brothers

I wanna say to may sisters and my brothers,
Keep the Faith
When the storm flies and the wind blows
Go on at a steady pace.
When the battle is fought and the victory's won
We can all shout together, "We have overcome"
We'll talk to the Father and the Son
When we make it to the Promised Land

Chorus:
If we walk together, little children,
We don't ever have to worry
Through this world of trouble,
We gotta love one another
Let us take our fellow man, by the hand
Try and help him to understand
We can all be together
Forever and Ever
When we make it to the Promised Land!

Our Bible reads; "Thou shalt not be afraid
of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in the darkness
Nor for the destruction that waiteth in the noon-day hour

Chorus

This world is not our home
We are only passing through
Our trail is all made up
Way beyond the blue
Let us do the very best that we can
While we're travelling through this land
We can all be together shakin our hands
When we make it to the Promised Land

When we make it to the Promised Land
Make it to the Promised Land
When we make it to the Promised Land
Make it to the Promised Land
We can all be together forever and ever
When we make it to the Promised Land
