lyrics

Nicodemus the man was of African birth
And he died years ago, very old.
He was known as a prophet -
At least was as wise -
For the future he did see fortold.
‘Twas his last sad request,
So we laid him away
In the trunk of an old hollow tree.
Wake me up, was his charge,
At the first break of day.
Wake me up for the great jubilee.

O the good times are coming.
They’re almost here.
’Twas long, long, long, on the way.
Go tell Elijah to hurry up Pomp.
Meet us at the gum tree
Down in the swamp,
To wake Nicodemus today.

He was known as a prophet -
At least was as wise,
For he told of the battles to come.
We were cold with fear
As he rolled up his eyes
And we dreaded the shake of his thumb.
Though the clothes that he wore were so simple and plain,
They were patches on elbow and knee,
And he still wears the suit
That he wore long ago
As he sleeps in the old hollow tree.

O the good times are coming.
They’re almost here.
’Twas long, long, long, on the way.
Go tell Elijah to hurry up Pomp.
Meet us at the gum tree
Down in the swamp,
To wake Nicodemus today.

’Twas a long weary night -
We were almost in fear
That the future was more
Than he knew.
’Twas a long weary night -
But the morning is near
And the words of the prophet hold true.
There are signs in the sky
That the darkness is gone.
There are symbols in endless array.
And the storm that had raged
For so long in the sky
Is now driven by bright light of day.

O the good times are coming.
They’re almost here.
’Twas long, long, long, on the way.
Go tell Elijah to hurry up Pomp.
Meet us at the gum tree
Down in the swamp,
To wake Nicodemus today.
Wake Nicodemus today.

Stone Breath Red Lion, Pennsylvania

Stone Breath is not new. It is cracked. Broken. Imperfect. Hidden. Weathered by the seasons.

We sing of ghosts and of forgotten paths through forest and fallow field.
