You made the rivers flow, the flowers grow.
You made the weak and the strong.
But, Lord, you made the night too long.
You made the robin sing a song of spring,
And me you gave a lovely song.
Oh, Lord, that's why this night's so long.
I've got a heart and I've got a cabin.
The door is open wide.
What good's a heart and what good's a cabin
If nobody lives inside.
You made the mountain high, the earth, the sky,
So who am I to say you're wrong?
But Lord, you made the night too long.
Lawd, You Made The Night Too Long - Lyrics
