GET THEE BEHIND ME - Lyrics

While he was sailing down the river
To the sea of Galilee
I put pharisees and sadducees to work for me
While he was walking on the water
Near the shores of Magadan
I was hiding in the desert with a wicked plan

I go by many names and I remember every face
Hang with me a while and you'll earn disgrace
Making water into wine, stones into bread
Remembering what he said
Get thee behind me, get thee behind me
Get thee behind me,
cause the devil won't show what he know you don't know

Yeah he was wandering in the wilderness
Forty days and forty nights
Never would have said to him I couldn't get right
Took him up the highest mountain
With a view of all the land
I thought just a glimpse of power would make him damned

Making water into wine, stones into bread
Remembering what he said
Get thee behind me, get thee behind me
Get thee behind me,
cause the devil won't show what he know you don't know
Get thee behind me, get thee behind me
Get thee behind me,
cause the devil won't show what he know you don't know

No, the devil won't show what he don't know
Well he cast me down to the underground
I'm gonna raise my throne
You're gonna hear my song

He said get thee behind me, get thee behind me
Get thee behind me,
cause the devil won't show what he know you don't know
Get thee behind me, get thee behind me
Get thee behind me,
cause the devil won't show what he know you don't know
Get thee behind me
Get behind me
Oh cause the devil won't show what he knows you don't know
Get behind me, yeah
Oh, the devil won't show what he knows you don't know
