Never Gonna Break My Faith

For the past week (June 29 – July 5, 2020), the number one song on my top 5 songs of the week is “Never Gonna Break My Faith” by Aretha Franklin ft. The Boys Choir of Harlem. I chose this song because it uplifts me from what I’ve been feeling lately.

“Never Gonna Break My Faith” was released on November 12, 2007.

Here is the music video.

Here is the lyrics for Never Gonna Break My Faith by Aretha Franklin

Verse 1
My Lord, I have read this book so many times
But nowhere can I find the page that says
What I experienced today has any grace

Pre-Chorus
Now I know that life is meant to be hard
That’s how I learned to appreciate my God
Though my courage may be tried, I can tell you I won’t hide
Because the footprints show you were by my side

Chorus
You can lie to a child with a smiling face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stone, you can break my bones
But you’re never gonna break, you’re never gonna break my faith
Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
Steal a crown from a king, break an angels wings
But you’re never gonna break, you’re never gonna break my faith

Verse 2
My Lord, won’t you help them, help them, help them to understand
That when someone takes the life of an innocent man, woo
Well, they never really won because all they’ve really done
Is set the soul free where it’s supposed to be

Chorus
You can lie to a child with a smiling face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stone, you can break my bones
But you’re never, you’re never gonna break my faith
Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
Steal a crown from a king, break an angel’s wings
But you’re never gonna break, you’re never gonna break my faith

Bridge
For those we lose before their time
I pray their souls will find the light
I know that the day will surely come
When his will, His will will be done
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, it will be

Outro
You’re never gonna break my faith
Oh yeah
He will, He will, He will
Never gonna break my faith
You’re never gonna break my faith, never, never
I’ll keep holding on, I’ll keep holding on
Never, never, never
Never, never
Never, never, never, never, never, never
You’re never gonna break my faith
Oh yeah, ain’t gonna break my faith
Never, never
