The summer breeze made ripples on the pond
Rattled through the reeds and the willow trees beyond
Daddy in his good hat momma in her Sunday dress
Watched with pride as I stood there in the water up to my chest

Preacher spoke about the cleansing blood
And I sank my toes into that east Tennessee mud

Then it was down with the old man
Up with the new
Raised to walk in the way of light and truth
Didn't see no angels, just a few saints on shore
But I felt like a new born baby
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

Amazing grace oh how sweet the sound
There was glory in the air, there was dinner on the ground
My sins were many where washed away and gone
Along with a buffalo nickel I forgot to leave it home

That seems like such a small small price to pay
For the blessed peace of mind that came to me that day


This road is long and dusty
Sometimes a soul it must be cleansed
And I long to feel that water
Rushing over me again


Cradled up in the arms of the Lord
