Dry Bones
Old Enoch he lived to be three-hundred and sixty-five
When the Lord came and took him back to heaven alive

I saw, I saw the light from heaven
A-shinin' all around
I saw the light come shining
I saw that light come down

When Paul prayed in prison, them prison walls fell down
The prison keeper shouted, "Redeeming Love I've found"

I saw, I saw the light from heaven
Shinin' all around
I saw the light come shining
I saw the light come down

When Moses saw that a-burning bush, he walked it 'round and 'round
And the Lord said to Moses, "You's treadin' holy ground"

I saw, I saw the light from heaven
Shinin' all around
I saw the light come shining
I saw the light come down

Dry bones in that valley got up and took a little walk
The deaf could hear and the dumb could talk

I saw, I saw the light from heaven
Shinin' all around
I saw the light come shining
I saw the light come down

Adam and Eve in the garden under that sycamore tree
Eve said to Adam, "Satan never tempted me"

I saw, I saw the light from heaven
Shinin' all around
I saw the light come shining
I saw the light come down
