rich r Lyr Req: You Can Tell the World (Gibson/Camp) (8) ADD: You Can Tell the World (gibson-camp) 26 Jan 99

(Gibson & Camp)

You can tell the world about this,
You can tell the nations about that
Tell them what the master has done,
Tell them that the gospel has come
Tell them that the victory's been won.
He brought joy, joy, joy into my heart.

My lord spoke, he spoke so well
Talked about the children of Israel.

My lord spoke, he spoke so well
Talked about fires that flame in hell.

Jordan River is chilly and wide
I've got a home on the other side.

My lord spoke to you and me (...and he spoke to me)
Talked about a man from Gallilee.

I heard him well and I was told (I don't know but I've been told)
The streets of heaven are paved with gold.

Sometimes I hang my head and cry
I know he'll save me when I die.

One of these days and it won't be long
He's gonna call my name and I'll be gone.

This is a great song based on an older spiritual. AS stated above version are on the Simon & Garfunkel "Wednesday Morning 3AM", Chad Mitchell Trio "At the Bitter End", "The Best of the CMT" "The Chad Mitchell Trio Reunion Pt 1" " , Gibson & Camp "At The Gate of Horn" and "At the Gate of Horn Revisited", Bob Gibson "Yes I See". This past fall I heard Peter Paul & Mary open a concert with it.

Joe, Actually there are 5 songs written by Simon on the Wed 3 AM recording and a 6th "Benedictus" that they take credit for "adapting and arranging" the famous catchall. The confusion arrises because "He Was My Brother" is listed by Paul Kane, aka Paul Simon. Kind of like "For Bobbi" by H J Deutchendorf.
