My Soul Is A Witness For My Lord

Who'll be a witness for my Lord?
Who'll be a witness for my Lord?
Who'll be a witness for my Lord?
Who'll be a witness for my Lord?
Oh, I'll be a witness for my Lord.
I'll be a witness for my Lord.
I'll be a witness for my Lord.
I'll be a witness for my Lord.

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.
(He said) Marvel not, man, if you want to be wise,
Repent, believe, and be baptized,"
Then you'll be a witness for my Lord.
You'll be a witness for my Lord.
You'll be a witness for my Lord,
Soul is a witness for my Lord.

You read about Samson, from his birth
He was the strongest man that ever lived on earth.
Way back yonder in ancient times
He killed ten thousand of the Philistines.
Then old Samson went a-wand'rin' about.
Samson's strength was never found out.
'Til his wife sat upon his knee.
She said, "Tell me where your strength lies, if you please!"
Well, old Samsons's wife she talk so fair
Samson said, "Cut off a my hair! Cut it off!
Shave my head just as clean as your hand,
and my strength will come like a natural man,"
Samson was a witness for my Lord.
Samson was a witness for my Lord.
Samson was a witness for my Lord,
Soul is a witness for my Lord.

There's another witness,
There's another witness,
There's another witness,
There's another witness,
There's another witness,
There's another witness,
There's another witness for my Lord!
My soul is a witness for my Lord!
