When I think of all the bitter times I’ve had
O God, it doesn’t make me sad
Oh, no, it doesn’t bother me
Strength and honor is all I see
O give thanks unto the Almighty God
He showed me what I had
He said, “Stand firm and keep the faith
O Your reward should be great”

So now I see the day when I’m stepping out of Babylon, in New Jerusalem
In Mount Zion
Now I’m stepping out of Babylon, in New Jerusalem in Mount Zion

Chorus:
Stepping out of Babylon one by one,
Stepping in Mount Zion
Stepping out of Babylon one by one,
Stepping in Mount Zion
Stepping, stepping, stepping out a Babylon
Stepping, stepping, stepping out a Babylon

I’ve got no alternative in a Babylon
But I know, yes, I know there’s a Mount Zion
But, oh, someday His children will find the way
So get up, get up
And don’t let the devil lead you astray

Stepping out of Babylon, in New Jerusalem
In Mount Zion
Now I’m stepping out of Babylon, in New Jerusalem in Mount Zion

Repeat Chorus
Stepping, stepping, stepping out a Babylon

O give thanks unto the Almighty God
He showed me what I had
He said, “Stand firm and keep the faith
O Your reward should be great”

So now I see the day when I’m stepping out of Babylon, in New Jerusalem
In Mount Zion
Now I’m stepping out of Babylon, in New Jerusalem in Mount Zion

Stepping out of Babylon, one by one

Oh, what a glorious day I see
Oh, what a beautiful day I see
When I’m stepping in the gates of the new Jerusalem, oh
Sing it sing it sing sing a Zion [TO FADE]
