I, John

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Well, I, John, he saw mighty numbers
Way up in the middle of the air
I, John he saw mighty numbers
Way in the middle of the air
Got to mighty move
I, John he saw mighty numbers
Way up in the middle of the air
I, John he saw mighty numbers
Way in the middle of the air

And there were three gates in the east
And there were three gates in the west
And there were three gates in the north
And there were three gates in the south
And that’s a total of twelve gates to the city all square wide
Allelu

Got to mighty move
I, John, he saw mighty numbers
Way up in the middle of the air
I, John he saw mighty numbers
Way in the middle of the air

Well John declared that he saw a man
He held twelve bright stars in his right hand
Well his eyes flashed fire like the burning sun
Old John got scared and he wanted to run
Well he wanted to run but his feet wouldn’t go
Cause he felt the gospel cutting like a two-edged sword
And he heard a voice that said John, you take a look
And read what you see and you write it in a book

And he saw twelve angels in the east
And there were twelve angels in the west
And there were twelve angels in the north,
And there were twelve angels in the south
That’s a total of forty-eight angels to the city, four squared wide
Allelu

Got to mighty move
I, John, he saw mighty numbers
Way up in the middle of the air
I, John he saw mighty numbers
Way in the middle of the air
