I was sleeping when two men dressed in white
Bruised and smiling, got chained up in the night
“Silas, why are you singing? The prisoners are trying to sleep”
He said, “Brother, I can’t keep quiet”
And he told us how we could be free
So we all joined in with him
We were singing through our dismay
I’m sure the guards were confused and afraid when the building started to shake
The guard drew out his sword to strike himself down where he stood
For he though he had let us escape
But Paul said, “Don’t worry friend! We are all still here. Do yourself no harm”
