Lyrics

Have you ever seen a church begin to rock?
Heard a sundown deacon preachin' to his flock?
Have you ever seen old Satan on the run?
Then follow me, see just how it's done, and have you;
Ever heard a sermon stir your soul?
Make you crave the River Jordan as you go?
Have you ever felt as though you'd like to shout?
Then come on and let them feelin's out, oh Lord!
Just hear those sisters groanin'
And hear those brothers moanin'
Rippin' and antonin'
On revival day
They talkin' to a spirit
Just like you see and hear it;
They're sinful and they fear it
On revival day
When that congregation starts to sing
Nothin' in this world don't mean a thing!
Oh, glory hallelujah!
Makes you feel so peculiar
The Devil cannot rule ya
On revival day!
Glory glory
Hymns are purifyin'
Glory glory
Wash my sins away!
Lawdy lawdy
Heal just like a lion
Lawdy lawdy
It's reborn today!
Oh, just tell those sisters groanin'
And hear them brothers moanin'
Rippin' and anantonin'
On revival day
Oh, they're talkin' to a spirit
Just like you see and hear it;
They sinful and they fear it
On revival day
When that congregation starts to sing
Nothin' in this world don't mean a thing!
Oh, glory hallelujah!
Makes you feel so peculiar
The Devil cannot rule ya
On revival day!
