See my ships
They are sailing
In and out of the harbor
Will they go together
Or must they stay apart
Yes I know it's in my heart
Surely you see what's inside of me
Jesus is coming soon
I can hear Gabriel
Blow his trumpet tune
This I know
This I know
Our lord is coming soon
Mercy mercy me
Marvin Gaye he was shot
By his father
O my Father
Have mercy on me
Cold kane o my cheap thrill
O my shame for Cain
And the devil
Momma I need water
I'm thirsty
Surely you see
What's inside of me
