I Won't Deny Him

Author: Troy Joy
Theme: Oppression
He took a train to Africa- In 1844
To take the love of Jesus
Where few had been before
But civil war and soldiers
were the forces in command
And when they tried to silence him
He said, "You've got to understand-

I WON'T DENY HIM
THOUGH YOUR GUN IS AT MY HEAD
I WON'T DENY MY SAVIOR
I WON'T SAY MY GOD IS DEAD
I WON'T DENY HIM
YOU CAN BURN ME ON A CROSS
'CAUSE FOR ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST
AND TO DIE WILL NOT BE LOSS
I WON'T DENY HIM

They burned his church and his bibles
Then they broke into his home
They said, "Don't use the name of Yesu (Jesus)
and we'll leave you alone"
He said, "We serve different masters
So I refuse to bow to you
But if you kill me I'll forgive you
For you know not what you do- but

CHORUS

And like a lamb led to the slaughter
tears welled up in his eyes
Then a shot rang through the jungle
With the echo of his cry

I WON'T DENY HIM...

SPANISH:
No le negarรฉ
aun que tenga tu arma en mi frente
no negarรฉ a mi sรกlvador (seรฑor)
no dirรฉ que el esta muerto
No le negarรฉ
Puedes quemarme en la cruz
para mi vivir es cristo
y el morรญr me es ganancia
No le negarรฉ
