​Holy Roll

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Brother of the Son (1976).

Well, I was lost in the wilderness o' shiftin' sand
And the devil, he was takin' his toll
When Jesus came through me, He held out His hand
I said I had it all under control

Now, I don't know why
I let the chance go by
It took me so long to see
Everywhere that I turned
I just kept gettin' burned
Until I let Him set me free

I did all that I could
Tryin' to prove I was good
I was set as anybody could be
I sunk about as low
As a man could go
Even demons were inhabiting me

Now I can't really say
Why I wanted to pay
Those dues to the devil so long
But you can take it from me
It feels good to be free
That's my reason for singin' a song

Cause there's not enough reasons
In this world to be down
If you'll just open up your ears and your eyes
Cause He's faithful and true
He's just waitin' for you
To give in and take off your disguise

It feels so good to do
You just tell Him you're through
You want Him to be in control
And God'll write your name
On that holy roll
And hallelujah, He'll save your soul!

Cause there's not enough reasons
In this world to be down
If you'll just open up your ears and your eyes
Cause He's faithful and true
He's just waitin' for you
To give in and take off your disguise

It feels so good to do
You just tell Him you're through
You want Him to be in control
And God'll write your name
On that holy roll
And hallelujah, He'll save your soul!
Hallelujah, He'll save your soul!
