Deliverance Day

I'm still waiting for Deliverance Day. Tie me to this tree while the sky turns red.
I wanna run away. When deliverance comes I don't wanna be dead.
Feel him comin'. Now he's comin'. No use runnin'.
He will trail you to the end of the road through the disease of the world on Deliverance Day.

The way of the world leaves love outlawed.
I'm an enemy of the world and a friend of God.

I'm still waiting for Deliverance Day. Tie me to this tree while the sky turns red.
I wanna run away. When deliverance comes I don't wanna be dead.
Feel him comin'. Now he's comin'. No use runnin'.
The disease that is the world conquers all but the blood of the lamb on Deliverance Day.

I cast off all judgments and was filled with joy.
There is one lawgiver who can save and destroy.

I'm still waiting for Deliverance Day. Tie me to this tree while the sky turns red.
I wanna run away. When deliverance comes I don't wanna be dead.
Feel him comin'. Now he's comin'. No use runnin'.
You will stand there in the sight of the one and only God
Who will shower you with mercy 'cause he loves you on Deliverance Day.

My garments are motheaten, my riches corrupted.
I prayed for rain. The sky erupted.\

Instrumental section

I woke up in a garden where the flowers grew tall
And the colors were so brilliant they held me in thrall.
Hibiscus and lilies and poppies and foxglove
And blue morning glories all showered me with love.
