(chorus)
Elijah Rock shout shout
Elijah Rock comin' up Lord
Elijah Rock shout shout
Elijah Rock comin' up Lord

Satan is a liar and a conjure too
If you don't (mind high) watch out
He'll conjure you
If I could I sho'ly would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
(chorus)

Ezekiel said he saw him
Wheel in the mid' of a wheel
John talked about him
In the book of the 7 seals
Some say the Rose of Sharon
Others say the Prince of Peace
But I can tell everybody (this ol' world)
He been a rock and a shelter for me
Hallelujah
(chorus)

You can call my rock in the morning
Call him late at night
He's always with me
And all my battles he'll fight
When I'm in trouble
I can call him on the line
He put a telephone in my heart (bosom)
And I can call God anytime
Hallelujah
(chorus)
