lyrics

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?
John the Revelator
Wrote the Book of the Seven Seals
