See my ships 
They are sailing 
In and out of the harbor 
Will they go together 
Or must they stay apart 
Yes I know it's in my heart 
Surely you see what's inside of me 
Jesus is coming soon 
I can hear Gabriel 
Blow his trumpet tune 
This I know 
This I know 
Our Lord is coming soon 
Mercy mercy me 
Marvin Gaye he was shot 
By his father 
O my Father 
Have mercy on me 
Cold kane o my cheap thrill 
O my shame for Cain 
And the devil 
Momma I need water 
I'm thirsty 
Surely you see 
What's inside of me
