Witness

Oh Lord, what manner of man is this?
All nations in him are blest,
all things are done by his will;
he spoke to the sea and the sea stood still.
 
Now, ain't that a witness for my Lord?
Ain't that a witness for my Lord?
Ain't that a witness for my Lord?
My soul is a witness for my Lord.
 
There was a man of the Pharisees,
His name was Nicodemus and he didn't believe.
The same came to Christ by night.
Wanted to be taught out of human sight.
Nicodemus was a man who desired to know
how a man can be born when he is old.
Christ told Nicodemus as a friend,
"Man, you must be born again."
Said, "Marvel not, man, if you wanna be wise,
Repent, believe and be baptized".
 
And then you'll be a witness for my Lord,
You'll be a witness for my Lord
You'll be a witness for my Lord
Soul is a witness for my Lord.
 
Now you read about Samson, from his birth
strongest man that ever lived on earth,
'way back yonder in ancient times
he killed ten thousand Philistines.
Then old Samson went wandering about;
Samson's strength was never found out
Till his wife sat upon his knee.
She said: "Tell me where
your strength lies, if you please".
Now, Samson's wife, she talks so fair,
Samson said: "Cut off-a my hair,
shave my head as you clean your hand
and my strength will become like a natural man".
 
Old Samson was a witness for my Lord.
Samson was a witness for my Lord.
Samson was a witness for my Lord.
Soul is a witness for my Lord.
 
There's another witness, I know
There's another witness
There's another witness
My soul is a witness for my Lord.
My soul is a witness for my Lord.
