Phish – Daniel Saw The Stone lyrics

Oh Daniel saw the stone that was hewed out the mountain
Daniel saw the stone that came rolling through Babylon
Daniel saw the stone that was hewed out the mountain
Coming down to redeem a mighty world
[repeat above 4 lines]

Well, meet me, Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
'Cause now if these wings should fail me
Lord, I want to hitch on another pair

Oh Jesus was the stone that was hewed out the mountain
Jesus was the stone that came rolling through Babylon
Jesus was the stone that was hewed out the mountain
Coming down to redeem a mighty world
[repeat above 4 lines]

Oh, well the tree it was bending
Up in the heavenly land
Well, my God spoke unto the Holy Ghost
He said, "Come on and let's make man"

I'm looking for the stone that was hewed out the mountain
I'm looking for the stone that came rolling through Babylon
I'm looking for the stone that was hewed out the mountain
Coming down to redeem a mighty world
[repeat above 4 lines]

Well, now, early in the morning the trumpet's gonna sound
The dead and Christ is gonna rise
Well, if you ain't got good religion
Lord, then hell you'll open your eyes

I found that stone that was hewed out the mountain
I found the stone that came rolling through Babylon
I found the stone that was hewed out the mountain
Coming down to redeem a mighty world
[repeat above 4 lines]

The main difference between this version and Phish's version is that Phish only uses the first verse cited here ("meet me, Jesus, meet me"). The other verse that Trey sings (the only other verse) is this:

Well, I saw a weary traveler
He was walking on down the road
Well, I saw him later that evening
He was walking on down that road

[followed by the "walk, walk, walk..." part]
