RCA Records and Legacy Records have released a never-before-heard solo version of “Never Gonna Break My Faith” by Aretha Franklin. The Grammy Award winning song was co-written by Bryan, and originally released as a duet with Mary J. Blige for the 2006 film ‘Bobby’.


  

“When the song was demo’d I told the producers that Aretha would be the one to sing this - and sing it she did,” says Bryan. “This solo version has been sitting on my computer for years, and when I heard Clive Davis was making a film on Aretha’s life, I sent this to him. The world hasn’t heard her full performance and it really needed to be heard. I’m so glad it’s being released, the world needs this right now.”

Lyrics:


My Lord, I have read this book so many times,


But nowhere can there I find - the page - that says


What I experienced today has any grace


Now I know that life was meant to be hard


And that's how I’ve learned to appreciate my God


Though my courage may be tried, I can tell you I won't hide


Because the footprints show you are by my side


 


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 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, never gonna break my faith


 


My Lord, won’t you help them to understand


That when someone takes the life of an innocent man


Well they've never really won, and all they've really done


Is set the soul free - where it's supposed to be


 


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 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, never gonna break my faith


 


For those we lose before their time


I pray that their souls will find the light


And I know that the day will surely come when His will will be done


You're never gonna break my faith

Christmas
