Jeremiah

Bobbie Gentry

Band/Artist: Bobbie Gentry

Album: Patchwork

Jeremiah, maybe I have seen eternity
Right out loud the distant clouds have talked to me
Jeremiah tell me how you came to prophesy
Can you seen the second coming in the sky

'Cause I've been here and you've been there and glory's all around
Have you heard the story that is goin' down
Fame and fortune, fun and folly, friend and family
Is a still life real, or is it fantasy

Jeremiah, I think you're a favorite man
Take me on a journey through your sanctified land
There's so many people who just won't understand
Jeremiah, won't you tell me all that you can?

Don't wanna bear the burden of Lucifer's curse
He just wants to keep us from our sweet Lord's mercy
Jeremiah, tell us where do we stand?

Tell all the people that blessed story
Amazing grace, oh precious glory
Jeremiah, oh Jeremiah
Jeremiah, tell us all that you can

'Cause I've been here and you've been there and glory's all around
Have you heard the story that is going down
Fame and fortune, fun and folly, friend and family
Is a still life real, or is it fantasy

Oh, Jeremiah, I think you're my favorite man
Take me on a journey through your sanctified land
There's so many people who just don't understand
Jeremiah, won't you tell me all that you can?

Everybody's got the lord to love and cherish
The good's gonna live and the bad's gonna perish
Jeremiah, tell us where do we stand?

Carry good tidings from the gospel pages
Stand up, stand up on the rock of ages
Jeremiah, oh Jeremiah
Jeremiah, tell us all that you can

Not for blessings, nor worldly pleasure
Nor for fame my prayer shall be
There's a better life I'm sure of
Oh, just show my lord to me and I can see, oh!

Tell me can you see that blessed fountain
Flowin' on down from Calvary's mountain
Jeremiah, tell us where do we stand?

Send the word to the fallen nation
Light the way to the people's salvation
Let us have a closer walk 'n
Let us hear the spirit talkin'

Make the children understand
Lead the people onward to the promised land
And tell us all, all that you can
