VeggieTales

Give Me Oil in My Lamp

'Cause somebody tells me that death's comin' 'round
An' I will not carry myself down to die
When I go to my grave, my head will be high

Let me die in my footsteps
Mm before I go down under the ground

There's been rumors of war and wars that have been
The meaning of life has been lost in the wind
And some people thinking that the end is close by
'Stead of learning to live they are learning to die

Let me die in my footsteps
Mm before I go down under the ground

I don't know if I'm smart but I think I can see
When someone is pulling the wool over me
And if this war comes and death's all around
Let me die on this land 'fore I die underground

Let me die in my footsteps
Mm before I go down under the ground

There's always been people that have to cause fear
They've been talkin' about a war now for many long years
I have read all their statements and I've not said a word
But now Lord God let my poor voice be heard

Let me die in my footsteps
Mm before I go down under the ground

Let me drink from the waters
Where the mountain streams flood
Let the smell of wildflowers flow free through my blood
Let me sleep in your meadows
With the green grassy leaves
Let me walk down the highway with my brother in peace

Let me die in my footsteps
Mm before I go down under the ground

Go out in your country
Where the land meets the sun
See the craters and the canyons
An' where the waterfalls run
Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Idaho
Let every state in this union
Seep deep down in your soul
And you'll die, in your footsteps
Mm before you go down under the ground

'Cause somebody tells me that death's comin' 'round
An' I will not carry myself down to die
