SEVEN SONGS

Roof (Anointing the Sick)

You got a home in gloryland, you got a home in gloryland 
You got a home in glory and nobody doubts
But death gonna come and pay a visit, death gonna come and pay a visit
Death gonna come a calling, cast his shadow down

But give me a roof to cut through and I'll cut through, I'll cut through it for you
Give me a roof to cut through and I'll cut through, I'll cut through it for you

There once was a Man from Nazareth, every little word He breathed was blessed
Every time He spoke, the crowds would press and push in round
But nothing's gonna stop us tonight, your lover she's been begging for an honest fight
She's been digging at the roof with all her might, she's gonna lower you down

So give her a roof to cut through and she'll cut through, she'll cut through it for you
Give me a roof to cut through and I'll cut through, I'll cut through it for you

Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me
When You come in Your glory, when You come in Your glory
Will we stand there with our eyes closed, still afraid to hope
