Carter Family, The - On The Rock Where Moses Stood Lyrics




Crying Holy unto the Lord
Crying Holy unto the Lord
Oh, in that day when the bells don't toll
Crying Holy unto the Lord

Crying Holy unto the Lord (Crying Holy unto the Lord Holy unto the Lord)
Crying Holy unto the Lord (Crying Holy unto the Lord Holy unto the Lord)
Oh, if I could, I surely would (If I could surely would)
Stand on the rock (Praise God) where Moses stood (where Moses stood)

Sinners, run unto the Lord
Sinners, run unto the Lord
Now please don't let this harvest pass
And lose your soul at last

Crying Holy unto the Lord (Crying Holy unto the Lord Holy unto the Lord)
Crying Holy unto the Lord (Crying Holy unto the Lord Holy unto the Lord)
Oh, if I could, I surely would (If I could surely would)
Stand on the rock (Praise God) where Moses stood (where Moses stood)

Crying Holy unto the Lord
Crying Holy unto the Lord
The four and twenty elders bowing all around the altar
Crying Holy unto the Lord

Crying Holy unto the Lord (Crying Holy unto the Lord Holy unto the Lord)
Crying Holy unto the Lord (Crying Holy unto the Lord Holy unto the Lord)
Oh, if I could, I surely would (If I could surely would)
Stand on the rock (Praise God) where Moses stood (where Moses stood)

    Amazing how timeless the Carter Family seems. In American Epic, Willie Nelson said, "When you hear the original Carter Family, you no longer need an explanation of why they are special".

  4. Wandering Travels

    Living in southern Kentucky, there are countless groups around that similar to the carter family.

    Terrace Youth

  10. Dan D. Dirges

    Searching YouTube I've heard several versions of this by modern singers.  I won't name any of them as the versions are all very good.  But ALL those modern versions sit well in the shadow of the Original Carter Family.  This wonderful 1930 recording of the Carter Family is supreme to all.  In 80+ years, no one has touched it yet.

    63DW89A so true! What were those other versions missing? Maybelle of course!
