And The Rain Came Down Lyrics
And the rain came down And it fell upon the ground And reminded me of all the words You said Yes the rain came down, yes the rain came down And the truth came down around me Like the sky was rainin' lead
Woke up this mornin' to the sound of fallin' rain So many awful messages were rollin' 'round my brain I looked out my window and the sky was dark as night Is it too late to change my ways and try and see the light I looked out to the left of me the water risin' high And in the flash of lightnin' that was lightin' up the sky I saw my neighbors wadin' through the water in the dark I know where they were goin' they were headin' for the ark
I caught them in a moment there was panic on my face Others joined our group and made it clear this was a race We had to try and find the ark and hope he'd let us in He who'd often warned us of the wages of our sin We moved along in silence though our hearts were cryin' out Noah was no fool there was no longer any doubt We rolled around the bend to where the ark had always stayed Our tears turned into wailing as we watched it sail away.
Woke up this mornin' when I heard a siren scream The sound of morning traffic pulled me from my awful dream My body bathed is sweat that matched the rain that fell outside I realized my time had come I could no longer hide All the early lessons I had learned at Sunday school Slashed me to the heart and made me see I'd been a fool I realized that all these years my eyes had been so blind I grabbed the telephone...and got my preacher on the line.
