Is that you my lord
Is that you my lord
Is that you my lord
Talking to my heart

I can hear a sound
Over the waters
I can hear a sound
Coming on the rain
I can hear a sound
Whisper on the wind
Sounds like the spirit calling out my name

It's calling to me in the morning
And it comes to me in my sleep
It tells me (hey/boy) lay down all these worthless things
And let me give you something you can keep
(Trade me in for)

Did you wear a crown
Was the devil laughing
Did you wear a crown
And was the curtain torn
Did the thunder pound
And did heaven look away
Did you wear a crown and was it made of thorns


Lord did you go down
And take on the devil

Lord did you go down
To hell for the key
Buried in the ground
And then did you rise up
Did you go down to hell and back for me

Is that you my lord
Walking on the water
Is that you my lord
Knocking at the door
Is that you my lord
Calling us to follow
Calling us to follow you forevermore
