Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)

Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Oh, rock my soul

I would not be a sinner
I'm tellin' you the reason why
I'm afraid my Lord might call me
Great God, and I wouldn't be ready to die

Hmm, baby, won't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)

Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Oh, rock my soul

I would not be a liar
I'm tellin' you the reason why
I'm afraid my Lord might call me
Great God, and I wouldn't be ready to die

Hmm, baby, won't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)

Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Oh, rock my soul

I would not be a back biter
I'm tellin' you the reason why
I'm afraid my Lord might call me
Great God, and I wouldn't be ready to die

Hmm, baby, won't rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)

Why don't you rock my soul?
(In the bosom of Abraham)
Oh, rock my soul
Rock my soul, rock my soul
