Warden threw Paul and Silas down in jail
The prisoners around 'em thought their plans had failed
It started somethin' when the boys began to sing
It shook the earth a lot and let the jailbirds spring
Chorus: In the stocks -- everybody was shocked
Every door in each cell was unlocked
When the Macedonian jail got rocked
Silas started praisin' and it cracked some stone
Little do they know it was a sign of what's to come
A rumblin' noise it hit the boys and smashed those chains
It broke the Richter scale -- it was a powerful thing
From the throne of Heaven came a thundering
Tore right through the jail rather effortlessly
They should've used a seismograph but honestly
They wanted to but it was 51 ad
Macedonia prison in the time of Rome
Was more like California when it all was done
The warden said, "Hey buddy, could you please explain?
Can you tell me what to do so I'll get saved? Let's talk! "
"If you just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
Warden, you can now repent and change your life
Would you like forgiveness? " And he said, "Yes, yes!
"You gotta stick around, I'm gonna get my kids! Let's talk!"
When the Macedonian jail got rocked [x4]
Thank you very much.
