It's In The Book

This song is by Shirley Caesar and appears on the album Rejoice (1980).

It's in the book, it's in the book
It's in the book, you better stop and take a look

Moses and the people had their backs against the wall, yes
They knew they were in trouble, and Moses knew who to call
The Egyptians and ol' Pharaoh, they were hard on their trail
The people there. they were so afraid, they began to weep and wail

Then Moses called upon the Lord, he said, please do something quick
With a pillar of fire he showed his power, the sea began to split

It's in the book, it's in the book
It's in the book, you better take a look
It's in the book, it's in the holy bible
It's in the book, you better take a look

The book to heaven
To hear Jesus teach and pray
They walked and talked and praised the Lord
They stayed there for days and days
Jesus said to his disciples
These people have come to see the light
For they've been here for three long days
And they haven't had a bite
So he took the loaves and fishes up, began to break the bread
They passed along the baskets, the multitude was back

It's in the book, it's in the book
It's in the book, you better take a look
It's in the book, it's in the word of God
It's in the book, you better take a look

Jesus said he's coming back
But nobody knows just when
You read about the prophecy
The time is close at hand
So get your act together, brother
You got to go down on your bended knees
Please take this opportunity
And talk to Jesus, please

He'll love you and forgive you and make you white as snow
And when he comes back to set the time, to heaven you'll go

It's in the book, it's in the book
It's in the book, you better take a look
It's in the book, it's in the book
It's in the book, you better take a look
It's in the book, it's in the bible
It's in the book, you better take a look
It's in the book, it's in the bible
It's in the book, you better take a look
God told me to tell you, he's coming back again
He said, get your house in order for you don't know just when
He's coming like a thief and walk like a robber in the night
If I was you
