Praise His Name

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

A track from an unreleased Robert Hunter album. It generally circulates under the title "Praise His Name" but it appears from Hunter's copyright registrations that it's true title may be "Word".

Talk about the last salvation
Talk about the holy names
Talk about John and the Word begin
You know the Word it still remains
Praise his name
Praise his name

Think about the city of Beelshebub
Reaching in the Arab sun
Think about the man walk a crooked mile
To find his race is run
Praise his name
Praise his name

Talk about the seat of corruption
The healing touches sleep
Listen for the sound of the Lord of the waves
When the storm stirs up the deep
Praise his name
Praise his name

Praise the Lord you've chosen
Carve his face on the mountains
Etch his words with the chalk and steel
And don't you deny his name
Praise his name
Praise his name

Well the Word is the key to heaven
The lock is turned within
Three times round and the steel will fly
And one time to begin
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name

Talk about the last salvation
Talk about the holy names
Talk about John and the Word begin
You know the Word it still remains
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
Praise his name
