GET THEE BEHIND ME
Nathan Tinkham
Rhythm Range Music SOCAN

Many times I've heard it said that life's a rocky road
So easy to stumble when you're carrying a heavy load
So I've been praying [I've been praying]
Praying for my eyes to see
And I've been staying [I've been staying on]
The path that's right for me

For sometimes the devil comes [As an angel of light]
And my thoughts get cloudy [And I can't tell wrong from right]
Help me to know him, so I can say
"Get thee behind me, you're standing in my way".

Once Solomon was sleeping, and he heard God call his name, saying,
"What shall I give to thee, wisdom, wealth or fame"?
He answered "Wisdom [give me wisdom]
So I'll judge my people right" , and God said,
"That much and more, I'll give to you this night".

Now, if you see the devil coming [As an angel of light]
And your thoughts get cloudy [And you can't tell wrong from right]
You will know him, so you can say
"Get thee behind me, you're standing in my way".

Now if I find I'm traveling on a road that's smooth and wide
and I can't find that narrow gate that leads me on to life
I'll keep praying [I'll keep praying]
Praying for my eyes to see
And I'll keep staying [I'll keep staying on]
The path that's right for me

Now if I see the devil coming [As an angel of light]
My thoughts won't get cloudy [And I'll know wrong from right]
I will know him, so I can say,
"Get thee behind me, you're standing in my way".

And if I see the devil coming [As an angel of light]
My thoughts won't get cloudy [And I'll know wrong from right]
I will know him, so I can say,
"Get thee behind me, you're standing in my way".
