Oh sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
All on that day

Well I run to the rock
Please hide me, I run to the rock
Please hide me, I run to the rock
Please hide me, Lord
All on that day

But the rock cried out
"I cant hide you" the rock cried out
"I cant hide you" the rock cried out
"I aint gonna hide you, guy
All on that day"

I said, "Rock whats the matter with you, rock?
Dont you see I need you, rock?"
Lord, Lord, Lord
All on that day

So I run to the river
It was bleedin', I run to the sea
It was bleedin', I run to the sea
It was bleedin' all on that day

So I run to the river, it was boilin'
I run to the sea, it was boilin'
I run to the sea, it was boilin'
All on that day

So I run to the Lord
"Please hide me, Lord
Dont you see me prayin' ?
Dont you see me down here prayin' ?"

But the Lord said, "Go to the Devil"
The Lord said, "Go to the Devil"
He said, "Go to the Devil"
All on that day

So I ran to the Devil
He was waiting
I ran to the Devil, he was waitin'
I ran to the Devil, he was waitin'
All on that day

So I cried, "Power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power
Break it down
Break it down

Power, power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Oh, I run to the river
It was boilin', I run to the sea
It was boilin', I run to the sea
It was boilin' all on that day

So I ran to the Lord
I said, "Lord hide me
Please hide me
Please help me"
All on that day

He said, "Girl, where were you?
When you are old and prayin'"
Said, "Lord lord, hear me prayin'
Lord Lord, hear me prayin'
Lord Lord, hear me prayin' "
All on that day

Sinner man, you oughta be prayin'
Oughta be prayin', sinner man
Oughta be prayin' all on that day

I cried, "Power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power
Power, power, power

Bring it down
All down
All down
Bring it down

Power, power, power

Power, power, Lord
Don't you know?
Don't you know, I need you Lord?
Don't you know, when I need you?
Don't you know, ho ho ho that I need you?

Power, power, power, Lord
