Looking for Jesus, looking for the man
Looking for Jesus, looking for the man
Looking for Jesus

There are multitudes of people crying
Because they just won't try to understand
From the book I read, not one but all should fall here
Come and join the magnificent sanctuary band

There are multitudes of people dying
Well, temptation rules all over the land
But we should remember His commandments
Come and join the magnificent sanctuary band

Just singing in the band, talking to the Man
Bringing in the sheep all over the world, fast as they can
Singing in the band, talking to the Man
Drop everything you're doing to join the sanctuary band

Well, the Son of Man speaks of revelations
That is reaching out, reaching out His hands
Well, He has promised us all of our sweet salvation
Come and join the magnificent sanctuary band

Just singing in the band, talking to the Man
Bringing in the sheep all over the world, fast as they can
Singing in the band, talking to the Man
Drop everything you're doing to join the sanctuary band

Just singing in the band, talking to the Man
Bringing in the sheep all over the world, fast as they can
Singing in the band, talking to the Man
Drop everything you're doing to join the sanctuary band
