Chris Sligh – Run On For A Long Time Lyrics

Chris Sligh – Run On For A Long Time Lyrics

My goodness gracious, let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on a bended knee
Talking to the Man from Galilee

He spoke to me in the voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet
He called my name, and my heart stood still
When He said, "Son, go do my will"

Go tell that long-tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the backbiter
Tell him God Almighty's gonna cut him down

You can run now for a long time
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)
Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna cut you down

You can run now for a long time
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)
Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna cut you down

You may throw your rock, hide your hand
Working in the dark against your fellow man
As sure as God made day and night
What you do in the dark will be brought to the light

You may run and hide, slip and slide
Try to take the mote from your neighbor's eyes
Oh yeah, as sure as God made the rich and poor
You're gonna reap just what you sow, oh, oh no

You can run now for a long time
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)

Some people go to church just to signify
Trying to make a date with the neighbor's wife
Well then, let me tell you, just as sure as you're born
You better leave that woman alone

'Cause one of these days, just mark my word
Think that brother has gone to work
You sneak right up, knock on that door
That's all, brother, you'll knock no more

So tell that long-tongue liar
Tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the backbiter
Tell him God Almighty's gonna cut him down

You can run now for a long time
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)
Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna knock you down

You can run now for a long time
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)
Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna cut you down

You can run now for a long time
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)
Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna cut you down
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)

Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna cut you down
Oh yeah, run on
(Run on for a long time, run on for a long time)
Let me tell you, God Almighty's gonna cut you down
