Shadow of My Lord

As I walk down by the water’s edge

I asked the Lord to reveal himself

He said, son, you just don’t know

My face would burn 

The flesh from your bones

The flesh from your bones

The flesh from your bones


But know my word: you can see my true form

You can see my shadow, shadow of your Lord

When I pass by stand still as a stone

Wait for the shadow, shadow of your Lord

Shadow of your Lord

Shadow of your Lord

Shadow of your Lord


Down deep in the valley, valley of dry bones

I wait on the shadow, shadow of my Lord

My true love calls to me: baby come home

But still I wait

For the shadow of my Lord

Shadow of my Lord

Shadow of my Lord


Sky grows dark and the thunder cracks

Rain whips down lifts blood from my back

I know he’s coming and we’re all going to burn

I keep my heart open

For the Shadow of my Lord

Shadow of my Lord

Shadow of my Lord


And old woman screams into a dead turtle’s shell

God be coming and you are all going to hell

You’re not going to wake up, this is not God’s Dream

This is just God’s shadow 

Passing over things

Passing over things

Passing over things
