I remember how I used to walk up and down the streets Of the city of New Orleans, bound by drugs, bound by alcohol Committing the different acts of sin, living beneath my privilege Doing things that were contrary to God as well as the law But after all the things that I did And after all the sins that I committed One day I heard about Jesus I'm just like the woman that heard about Jesus Coming through the city of Jericho, and she had a problem But I had a problem with lying too and lying was sin I was living in sin, living and doing things I wanted to do Living and seeing what I wanted to see But one day Jesus touched my life And when Jesus came in, the liquor went out, the drugs went out My old lady, the lord bleeds I thank God my sins and judge every And I have a right to the tree Doesn't mean jack to me and everyone that knows Jesus and everyone that's been born again And everyone that's been washed in the blood You heard the brother singing about the blood It's stuff about the blood It's stuff about the blood of Jesus and wash away your sins And wash your mind and wash your heart and wash your life, oh praise God I thank God for that opportunity and I just want to let you know That he loves us and the Bible backs it up "That God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son That whoever should believe in him shall not perish but have an everlasting life." What's the plan when he comes through this door? What happens? Speak up, Butch, please Well, he goes on and goes up to the elevator, gets drunk But, I mean, what does he do? He comes through this through this door? Why don't you just tell me? He comes through this door, goin' around and takes the elevator What is this, the kitchen or? No, this is the freight elevator Do you have lots of people coming through like that? Well, there's one Do you have a lot of celebrities coming through? Well, no holiday Conventions and things in the back just coming up this way What do you think about Elvis Presley coming through here? Oh, it's wonderful Do you know anything about him? Yeah, do I know anything about him? Yeah I was raised in his home town Are you gonna be saying something to him or be talking to him? Well, that's just gonna depend Are you looking forward to seeing him? Sure Why don't you show us where he's coming in? He's coming through this door here There's two doors in this entrance He's coming through this door here And this is and it Opens back like this and we have this one The other door goes back like this You gotta have the blood of Jesus Christ The love from For man he died on that cross So that we might have a right to the tree of life I come to tell you this, my beloved
