Joan Osborne - "Passin' Thru" lyrics

I have stood upon the mountain
I have seen the other side
I have wrestled with the devil
I have wrestled with my pride
I have been down in the valley
I have stood out in the rain
I have seen my love forsaken
Felt the pleasure and the pain

There's one thing that's for certain
One chord that rings true
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is, we're only passin' thru

I have cried in tears of sadness
I have cried in tears of joy
I have found a life worth livin'
From the peace within the noise
I have turned by back on hatred
Lyin', prejudice and greed
Found the future in the present
Found hope within a seed

There's one thing that's for certain
One chord that rings true
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is, we're only passin' thru

Passin' thru, passin' thru
It's a mighty world we live in
but the truth is
We're only passin' thru

I have seen my bucket empty
I have seen my well run dry
But there's water down the road
And I'm only goin' by
If I'm settin' on dead ready
When my chances come and knock
I'll make it where I'm going
I'll be tall just like a rock

There's one thing that's for certain
One chord that rings true
It's a wicked world we live in
But the truth is, we're only passin' thru

Passin' thru, passin' thru
It's a mighty world we live in
but the truth is
We're only passin' thru

Yea, it's a mighty world we live in
but the truth is
We're only passin' thru
