GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN

1. I got a home in that rock, don't you see?
I got a home in that rock, don't you see?
I got a home in that rock,
Just beyond the mountaintop.
Hide me, ol' Rock of Ages, cleft for me.

2. God gave Noah the rainbow sign, don't you see?
God gave Noah the rainbow sign, don't you see?
God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
No more water, but fire next time.
Hide me, ol' Rock of Ages, cleft for me.

3. Poor ol' Lazarus, poor as I, don't you see?
Poor...
Poor ol' Lazarus, poor as I,
When he died he had a home on high.
Hide me...

4. East and west the fire will roll, hide by me.
East...
East and west the first will roll,
How will it be with my first soul?
Hide me...

5. When this world's all on fire, hide by me.
When...
When this world's all on fire,
Let thy bosom be my pillow.
Hide me...

Recorded in 1929; source has not been firmly established but may have come from an old hymnbook (according to Sara).
