No. 127. Chilly Water

1
Chilly water, chilly water,
Hallelujah to that Lamb.
I know that water is chilly and cold,
And-a Hallelujah to that Lamb.

Chilly water, chilly water,
Hallelujah to that Lamb,
I have Jesus in-a my soul,
And-a Hallelujah to the Lamb.

2
In-a that ark, the little dove mourned,
And hallelujah to that Lamb.
Christ Jesus standing as the corner stone,
And hallelujah to the Lamb.
3
Old Satan's just like a snake in the grass,
And hallelujah to the Lamb,
Watching for to bite you as a-you pass,
And hallelujah to that lamb.
4
Oh, brothers and sisters, one and all,
And hallelujah to the Lamb,
You had better be ready when the roll is called,
And hallelujah to the Lamb.
