As sure as God made the day and the night What you do in the dark will be brought to the light You may run and hide, slip and slide Trying to take the mote from your neighbour's eyes As sure as God made the rich and poor You gotta reap just what you sow You can run on for a long time, Run on for a long time You may run on for a long time, Run on for a long time Let me tell you God almighty gonna cut you down
