"By the Mark" as written by Gillian Howard Welch and David Todd Rawlings....
When I cross over
I will shout and sing
I will know my savior
By the mark where the
Nails have been

[Chorus]
By the mark where the
Nails have been
By the sign upon his precious skin
I will know my savior
When I come to him
By the mark where the
Nails have been

A man of riches
May claim a crown of jewels
But the king of heaven
Can be told from the
Prince of fools

[Chorus]

On Calvary's Mountain
Where they made him suffer so
All my sin was paid for
A long, long time ago

[Chorus]
