Representative Text

1 I've got a home in-a that Rock,
Don't you see?
I've got a home in-a that Rock,
Don't you see?
Between the earth and sky
Thought I heard my Saviour cry,
I've got a home in-a that Rock,
Don't you see?

2 Poor old Laz'rus, poor as I,
Don't you see?
Poor old Laz'rus, poor as I,
Don't you see?
Poor old Laz'rus, poor as I,
When he died had a home on high,
He had a home in-a that Rock,
Don't you see?

3 Rich man, Dives, lived so well,
Don't you see?
Rich man, Dives, lived so well,
Don't you see?
Rich man, Dives, lived so well,
When he died he found a home in hell,
Had no home in that Rock,
Don't you see?

4 God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
Don't you see?
God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
Don't you see?
God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
No more water, but fire next time,
Better get a home in that Rock,
Don't you see?
