Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Well who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

You know God walked down in the cool of the day
And called Adam by his name
And he refused to answer
'Cause he was naked and ashamed

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

You know Christ had 12 apostles
And three he laid away
He said, "Watch with me one hour
Till I go yonder and pray"

Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

Christ came on Easter morning
Mary and Martha they went down to see
Go tell My disciples
To meet Me in Galilee

Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals
