we must love
we must love
for Jesus cares for us
cause you ought to know in him
he is our only trust

whatever we desire
whenever we do pray
we must have the faith & belief
that he will do just what he says

oh, Paul & Silas
in the Philippi jail
they were both bound
cause they believed in Jesus
they found him close around
& in the dark hours of midnight
when everything was still
oh, Paul whispered to Silas
"let us do our master's will"

oh, Silas
he began singing
oh, Paul
he entered in prayer
then heaven it got all stirred up
& an angel met them there
& jail doors all flew open
& the jailer thought they were all gone
& he pulled for his sword to kill himself
Paul said, "do yourself no harm"

he sprung out on the floor
in the light he wanted them to gaze
he replied to Paul & Silas
"what shall I do to be saved?"
& Paul being one of Christ's children
seeing that his jailer curled in fright
he said "you must believe in my savior Jesus Christ"

I'm going home,
I'm going home
I'm going home on the morning train
if I happen to make it too late
oh sure, it won't be my aim
I'm sleeping up this old templed body
& ascending those golden stairs
oh, the place that Paul called heaven
I'll meet my savior there
