56. I Heard the Preaching of the Elder

Refrain:
I heard the preaching of the Elder,
Preaching the Word, preaching the Word;
I heard the preaching of the Elder,
Preaching the Word of God.
I heard the preaching of the Elder,
Preaching the Word, preaching the Word;
I heard the preaching of the Elder,
Preaching the Word of God.

1 How long did it rain? Can any one tell?
Preaching the Word of God,
For forty days and nights it fell,
Preaching the Word of God. [Refrain]

2 How long was Jonah in the belly of the whale?
Preaching the Word of God.
Three whole days and nights he sailed,
Preaching the Word of God. [Refrain]

3 When I was a mourner just like you,
Preaching the Word of God,
My knees got acquainted with the hillsides too,
Preaching the Word of God. [Refrain]
