Representative Text

1 When I was living at hell's dark door,
My Lord's a waiting all the time.
I never did lie so low before,
My Lord's a waiting all the time.

Chorus:
He sees all you do, hears all you say,
My Lord's a waiting all the time.

2 When I was down in Egypt's land,
My Lord's a waiting all the time.
I heard a lot of talk of the promised land,
My Lord's a waiting all the time. [Chorus]

3 Old Pharoah thought he had me fast,
My Lord's a waiting all the time.
But the sea dried up and let me pass;
My Lord's a waiting all the time.
