Armstrong, Louis - Ezekiel Saw The Wheel Lyrics




Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
A wheel in a wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

Some go to church to sing and shout
Way in the middle of the air
Before six months they've shouted out
Way in the middle of the air

Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
A wheel in a wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

Let me tell you what a hypocrite'll do
Way in the middle of the air
He'll talk about me, he'll talk about you
Way in the middle of the air

Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
A wheel in a wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

Don't pray for things that you don't need
Way in the middle of the air
The Lord don't like no sin and greed
Way in the middle of the air

Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
A wheel in a wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

There's one thing sure that you can't do
Way in the middle of the air
You can't serve God and Satan too
Way in the middle of the air

Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
A wheel in a wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

One of these days about twelve o'clock
Way in the middle of the air
This old world's gonna reel and rock
Way in the middle of the air

Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air
And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
A wheel in a wheel
Way up in the middle of the air

Ezekiel saw the wheel
Within a wheel in a wheel my lord
wheel wheel in a wheel
within in a wheel in a wheel great god o mighty
wheel wheel in a wheel
Within a wheel in a wheel my lord
Ezekiel saw the wheel!

    Could do no wrong!

  2. DonPeyote

    I remember having an old cassette of this back in the 90's
    I was but a wee boy, but this was my first introduction to Louie, besides some old bank commercial where they used a bit of Let My People Go

  3. Kitty Maehem

    Thankyou “How to Heretic”! Very similar timbre to ‘Dem Bones’ , or is it just me?

  4. Cyrano

    Brilliant !

    Looks like Louis rappin about a UFO


    Book of Ezekiel


    1:4 I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north--an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like GLOWING METAL.


    1:5 and in the fire was what looked like four LIVING CREATURES. In appearance their form was human.


    1:15 As I looked at these beings, I saw four WHEELS touching the ground beside them, one wheel belonging to each.


    1:14 The creatures sped back and forth like flashes of lightning


    1:18 Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around. (PORTHOLES?)


    1:19 When the living beings moved, the wheels moved with them. When they flew upward, the wheels went up, too

    Lion of Judah, Lamb of God

    The big wheel run a by faith. The little wheel runs by the grace of god.

    Lion of Judah, Lamb of God

    The UFO thing is a clever deception and a religion in disguise. Christ is the only truth that I can vouch my life on.

    L DH

    @Lion of Judah, Lamb of God UFOs are deceptions of demons. Any attempt to put UFOs into biblical stories is a satanic trick.

    What Ezekiel saw was the throne-chariot of the Most High God.
    It was a vision.
    It wasn't, for lack of a better word, a live action "play-by-play" of a physical event.
    He had a vision that communicated ancient Near Eastern ideas about the God of Israel through imagery and symbolism.
    What you're doing by forcing UFO's onto the text, is imposing a 21st century idea into the passage, which the author didn't intend to convey to his contemporaries, or to us for that matter.

    @mapboy78
    Ezekiel saw what the Egyptians called the Mer-Ka-Bah

  12. Matthew Kenny

    @mapboy78 Ezekiel actually saw the what the Egyptians referred to as the Mer-Ka-Bah.

  15. creation studio

    just an angel sent by God to show us what music really means:X a man with Louis's voice should never sing...still he did and did it in the best way possible...Thank you, Louis Armstrong!
