COVER DOWN, BREAK THROUGH

You heard about Pharaoh's army 
Tramplin' through the mud 
You heard about the Hebrew children 
Redeemed by blood 
Same spirit dwellin' in you 
That raised Christ from the dead 
You can quicken your mortal body 
Then let it run to your head 

You've got to cover down, cover down, break through 
Cover down, (cover down, break through) 

May need protection 
By the armour of the Lord 
The sword of God is sharper 
Than any double sided sword 
(He's the hammer of salvation) 
(The blade of righteousness) 
(Genesis to revelation) 
(Repent and confess) 

Cover down, cover down, break through 
Cover down, (cover down, break through) 

Well, you wake up early in the mornin' 
Turnin' from a-side to side 
Somethin' givin' you a warning 
You can run but you can't hide 
Demands are laid upon you 
And burdens a-you can't bear 
Sins you can't even remember 
I waited to meet you there 

You've got to cover down, cover down, break through 
Cover down, cover down, break through 

You've got an image of yourself 
You've built by yourself alone 
But it will come a-tumblin' down 
Just like the walls are made of stone 
You will be separated 
From everything you seem to be 
You think you'll be liberated 
Yeah, but the grave won't set you free 

You've got to cover down, cover down, break through 
Cover down, cover down, break through 

(Cover down, cover down, break through) 
(Cover down, cover down, break through) 

(Cover down, break through) 
(Cover down, oh Lord, cover down, break through)
