lyrics

Halleluiah, Ya Never Know

Jesus must be busy with another species
On some other planet out in the universe
His name gets chanted; people swear he’s present
Still things seem to go from bad to worse
Maybe we’ve had our shot; one chance was all we got
To love our neighbors as ourselves
drink deep from the blessing well
To be redeemed by fire and flood,
ashes to ashes; mud to mud
We all return to what we were before

Halleluiah, Halleluiah!
Ya never know if God is working through ya
Ya never know

When Moses came down from Sinai Mountain,
He found a Golden Calf revered by Israelites
To the money lenders in Wall St temples
A bronze bull symbolizes might
The march of Progress looks like Regress
Two steps forward; two steps back
The water board and the torture rack
The same mistakes get repeated
The same diseases, different treatments
We’re the same as those who’ve gone before

Halleluiah, Halleluiah!
Do something kind; it may come back to ya
Say a prayer. Cast it out there.
Ya never know if God is working through ya
Ya never know

Something crumbled the walls of Jericho;
Something sustained the Allied troops at Anzio
Something makes the morning come and the shadows go
