Transcription

As sure as God made the day and the night
What you do in the dark will be brought to the light
You may run and hide, slip and slide
Trying to take the mote from your neighbour's eyes
As sure as God made the rich and poor
You gotta reap just what you sow
You can run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
You may run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty gonna cut you down
