Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

484. Ezekiel Saw de Wheel

Ezek’el saw de wheel
’Way up in de middle o’ de air,
Ezek’el saw de wheel
’Way in de middle o’ de air.
De big wheel run by faith,
De little wheel run by de Grace o’ God,
A wheel in a wheel -
’Way in de middle o’ de air.

1 Better mind, my sister,
how you walk on de cross,
’Way in de middle o’ de air.
Your foot might slip an’ your soul be lost.
’Way in de middle o’ de air. [Refrain]

2 Let me tell you, brother,
what a sinner will do,
’Way in de middle o’ de air.
He’ll step on you an’ he’ll step on me.
’Way in de middle o’ de air. [Refrain]
