Chariot
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

[We open on a man in light, a slave, leaning on his shovel, in the heat of the day standing under the sun. He dreams of his freedom. Light flashes across the sky as the chariot roars across the heavens. The music builds and then drops out to drumming under the following call and response.]

Are you ready my brother?
Oh yes
Are you ready for the journey?
Oh yes
Do you want to see your savior?
Oh yes
I’m waitin’ for the chariot
Cause I’m ready to go

Are you ready my sister?
Oh yes
Are you ready for the journey?
Oh yes
Do you want to see your savior?
Oh yes
I’m waitin’ for the chariot
Cause I’m ready to go

Swing low
Sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low
Sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home

Why don’t you swing down chariot
Stop
And let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop
And let me ride

Rock me Lord oh’ rock me Lord
Rock me Lord oh’ rock me Lord
Rock me Lord oh’ rock me Lord
Calm an’ easy
I got a home on the other side

I’m sometimes up an’ sometimes down
Comin’ for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
Comin’ for to carry me home

I don’t know but I been told
The streets of heaven are paved with gold
I got a mother in the promised land
I won’t stop till I take her hand
An’ I got a brother on the other side
So I ain’t gonna stop ’til I take that ride

Swing low
Sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low
Sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home

Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Waitin’ for the chariot
To carry me home

And Elijah said watch me now
I’m goin’ to see my maker

Who coverest thyself with light
Who stretchest out the heavens
Like a curtain
Who maketh the clouds His chariot
Who walketh upon the wings of the wind

Who laid the foundations of the earth
Who watereth the hills from His chambers
Who maketh the clouds His chariot
Who walketh upon the wings of the wind

Behold He shall come up as clouds
And His chariots shall be as a whirlwind
His horses are swifter than eagles
As He cometh down to carry me away

Who sendest forth His spirit
Who maketh my face to shine
Who maketh the clouds His chariot
Who walketh upon the wings of the wind

Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Waitin’ for the chariot
To carry me home

And Elisha the disciple
Said unto his master
I shall ask a hard thing
A hard thing

Nevertheless I pray thee
Let twice the power of thy spirit
Be manifested in me

And Elijah the master
Said to his disciple
Thou hast asked a hard thing
A hard thing

Nevertheless if thou see me
When I am taken from thee
It shall be unto thee

Yes thou hast asked a hard thing
A hard thing
Nevertheless if thou see me
When I am taken from thee
It shall be unto thee

But if thou see me not
It shall not be so
And it came to pass
As they walked on
And talked on
That behold

Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha

Yes behold…

“Yes behold”
There appeared a chariot of fire
And horses of fire
Holy horses of fire
Yes down from the heavens
Came a chariot of fire
And parted them both asunder

Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha
Master Elijah
Disciple Elisha

And Elijah went up
In a chariot of fire
By a whirlwind into heaven
In a chariot of fire

Yes Elijah went up
In a chariot of fire
By a whirlwind into heaven
And Elisha saw the whirlwind
And the chariot of fire
Yes Elisha saw the whirlwind
And the chariot of fire
And he cried
Yes he cried

I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Comin’ for to carry me home
A band of angels comin’ after me
Comin’ for to carry me home

Why don’t you swing down chariot
Stop
And let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop
And let me ride
Rock me Lord oh’ rock me Lord
Calm an’ easy
I got a home on the other side

If you get there before I do
Comin’ for to carry me home
Tell all my friends that I’m comin’ too
Comin’ for to carry me
Comin’ for to carry me home

I’m gonna
Ride the chariot in the mornin’ Lord
I’m gonna
Ride the chariot in the mornin’ Lord
I’m gettin’ ready for the judgment day
My Lord, my Lord

I’m gonna
Ride the chariot in the mornin’ Lord
I’m gonna
Ride the chariot in the mornin’ Lord
I’m gettin’ ready for the judgment day
My Lord, my Lord

I’m gonna
Ride the chariot in the mornin’ Lord
I’m gonna
Ride the chariot in the mornin’ Lord
I’m gettin’ ready for the judgment day
My Lord, my Lord

Why don’t you swing down chariot
Stop
And let me ride
Swing down chariot
Stop
And let me ride!
