From the recording Horse and Rider
based on Miriam's Song: "Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously; horse and rider he has thrown into the sea."
Play me something tuneful you know I got a mind to sing
Miriam shake the beat out on your silver tamborine
How can a blessing feel so much like a curse?
In or out of Egypt I don't know which one is worse
I looked over Jordan What can it be?
Horse and rider Tumbling into the sea
Led by fire in darkness, smoling embers in the light
Always moving somewhere, somewhere always out of sight
Crying out so thristy "Look down on your holy flock"
Give me what I ask for; bring forth water out of rock
Lord I know you told me that you'd take me to the promised land
And I know it's out there but I am too weak to stand
I got a feeling lately that I may not make it o'er
But I'm raising up a child to eat milk and honey evermore
