Paul Kelly and The Stormwater Boys Passed Over Lyrics

sponsored links
Today is a very fine day, a very happy day in every way
Today is a very fine day-put your hands together and pray
The angel came mighty close, in the middle of the night he came so close
The angel came mighty close and then he carried on his way
He passed over, passed over, passed over

We slew the lamb and smeared his blood, killed the little lamb to stay the hand of God
We slaughtered the lamb and caught his blood and daubed it on the door
We heard the beating of the wings, heard the busy beating of the terrible wings
We heard the beating of the wings and then we heard nothing at all
He passed over, passed over, passed over

The first born child was burning up, in the middle of the night he called for a cup
The first born child was burning up, begging for his mama to come
Mama mopped his burning brow, mama dear came with a cool, cool towel
Mama mopped his burning brow and stayed watching over him
Passed over, passed over, passed over

The first born son came down the stairs, mama dear kissed his curly brown hair
The first born child came down the stairs, hungry as a grizzly bear
Today is a very fine day, a very happy day in every way
Today is a very fine day, the angel carried on his way
He passed over, passed over, passed over
