Track Name: John the Revelator
God walked down in the cool of the day
Called Adam by his name
But he refused to answer
‘Cause he was naked and ashamed

Well tell me who’s that writing?
John the Revelator.
Tell me who’s that writing?
John.
Who’s that writing?
John the Revelator
Wrote the Book of the Seven Seals

Pharoah left out of Egypt
Running God’s people down
God’s folk crossed the Red Sea dry
And Pharoah did drown

Well tell me who’s that writing?
John the Revelator.
Tell me who’s that writing?
John.
Who’s that writing?
John the Revelator
Wrote the Book of the Seven Seals

Christ had twelve apostles
Three he led away
Said, “Watch for me one hour”
“While I go out yonder and pray.”

Well tell me who’s that writing?
John the Revelator.
Tell me who’s that writing?
John.
Who’s that writing?
John the Revelator
Wrote the Book of the Seven Seals

Well, Mary and Margaret, they were there,
And they heard every word He said,
Go tell my disciples
To meet me in Galilee.

Well tell me who’s that writing?
John the Revelator.
Tell me who’s that writing?
John.
Who’s that writing?

Track Name: Run On
Run on for a long time
Run on, ducking and dodging
Run on for a long time
But sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Well my goodness gracious, let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the Midnight dew

I've been down on bended knee
Talking to the man from Galilee

He spoke to me in a voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of angels' feet

He spoke to me and my heart stood still
When he said, "My son, go on and do my will."

I want you to tell that long-tongued liar
Tell that midnight rider
Tell the Rambler, the gambler, the back-biter
That sooner or later God'll cut 'em down
Sooner or later God'll cut 'em down

You can throw your rock and hide you hand
Working in the dark against your fellow man

But as sure as God made black and white
What's done in the darkness will come back in the light

Run onRun on for a long time
Run on, ducking and dodging
Run on for a long time
But sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

You can run on for a long time
You can run on
You can run on but He'll get you
Track Name: Oh, Freedom!
Oh, freedom
Oh, freedom
Oh, freedom over me
And before I'd be a slave
I'd go on down and dig my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free.

No more weeping
No more weeping
No more weeping over me
And before I'd be a slave
I'd go on down and dig my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free.

No more moaning
No more moaning
No more moaning over me
And before I'd be a slave
I'd go on down and dig my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free.

There'll be singing
There'll be singing
There'll be singing over me
And before I'd be a slave
I'd go on down and dig my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free.
Track Name: God Moved on the Water
Year of nineteen hundred and twelve, April the fourteenth day
Great Titanic struck an iceberg, people had to run and pray
People had to run and pray

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

The guards who had been a-watching, asleep 'cause they were tired
When they heard the great excitement, then a gunshot was fired

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

Captain Smith gave orders, women and children first
Many of the lifeboats piled right up, and the people they were liable to crush

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

Oh, Ah, Oh, Ah,

So many had to leave their happy home, all that they possess
Lord Jesus, will you hear us now, help us in our distress

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

A.G. Smith, mighty man, built a boat that he couldn't understand
Named it a name, God in a tin, took it to sea but Lord pulled it in.

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray
