At first when I heard of some people who claim
That the old time religion was real
I said, "I'll go down, take a look at the crowd
For just that weak-minded I feel"

I walked up the steps and I peeked in the door
But the Devil said, "Don't you go in!"
But I said, "It won't hurt me I'll just step inside
And set as far back as I can"

But something got a hold of me, praise God
Yes something got a hold of me
I went there to fight but I'll tell you that night
God certainly got a hold of me

They sang like they meant it, they all clapped their hands
I said, "Its commotion, thats all"
When they get down to pray, I'll just get up and leave
For I don't wanna be seen here at all

But I bowed that time he got started to preach
And he looked straight down at me
He told everybody how mean that I was
He didn't talk like he thought much of me

I sat in my seat just thinkin' it o'er
And then they all started to pray
The fire fell from Heaven, I knelt to the floor
I prayed there and God had His way

And now then I know that I don't need to doubt
For I got an experience that night
I will never forget it as long as I live
I found that salvation was right

But something got a hold of me, praise God
Yes something got a hold of me
I went there to fight but I'll tell you that night
God certainly got a hold of me
