Has anyone ever heard of a song called (I think) "Wowaya"? I learned it as a child at Brooklyn Friends School, but recently remembered it when singing to by baby daughter. The words are something like "We are going/Heaven knows where we are going/We'll know we're there" (2x) and then, "It will be hard, we know/And the road will be muddy and rough but we'll get there/Heaven knows how we will get there...". I'd really love to know what this song is called and if there are anymore lyrics (it's a surefire sedative

we are going
heaven knows where we are going
we know within

we will get there
heaven knows how we will get there
we know we will

it will be hard we know

but we'll get there
heaven knows how we will get there
we know we will
