Spiritual – Witness Lyrics

Oh Lord, what manner of man is this?

All nations in him are blest,

all things are done by his will;

he spoke to the sea and the sea stood still.

Rit. Now, ain’t that a witness for my Lord?

Ain’t that a witness for my Lord?(2v.)

My soul is a witness for my Lord.

Now there was a man of the Pharisees,

His name was Nicodemus and he didn’t believe.

The same came to Christ by night.

Wanted to be taught out of human sight.

Nicodemus was a man who desired to know

how a man can be born when he is old.

Christ told Nicodemus as a friend,

“Man you must be born again.”

Said, “Marvel not, man, if you wanna be wise,

Repent, believe and be baptized”.

Rit. Then you’ll be a witness for my Lord,

You’ll be a witness for my Lord (2 v.)

My soul is a witness for my Lord.

Now you read about Samson, from his birth

strongest man that ever lived on earth,

‘way back yonder in ancient times

he killed ten thousand Philistines.

Then old Samson went wandering about;

Samson’s strength was never found out

Till his wife sat upon his knee.

She said: “Tell me where your strength lies, if you

please”.

Now, Samson’s wife, she talk so fair,

Samson said: “Cut off my hair,

shave my head as you clean your hand

and my strength will become like a natural man”.

Rit. Old Samson was a witness for my Lord. (3 v.)

My soul is a witness for my Lord.

There’s another witness for my Lord. (3 v.)

My soul is a witness for my Lord.
