Lyrics ~
Fire at Midnight

 


Won't you come and take me, take me by the hand?
Won't you walk with me down to the Promised Land?
The river gonna roll, sweet chariot swing down low
And the fire at midnight

There's a storm a-comin', I see them clouds all rollin' in
Go on chase me down the road, I can't see where I've been
Lightning flash, I hear the thunder roar, but I am not afraid
I know I'll make it home again someday

Won't you come and take me, take me by the hand?
Won't you walk with me down to the Promised Land?
The river gonna roll, sweet chariot swing down low
And the fire at midnight

My journey's long and lonesome, there's no rest along the way
Those who would impose their will obstruct me every day
I know their hearts are empty and I hold next to me my faith
That freedom's but a day or two away

Won't you come and take me, take me by the hand?
Won't you walk with me down to the Promised Land?
The river gonna roll, sweet chariot swing down low
And the fire at midnight
