Something God hold of me

At first when I heard of some people who claimed
That old time religion was real
I said I'll go down, take a look at the crowd
For they'er just that weak minded I feel

I walked up the steps, and I peeked in the door
The devil said "Don't you go in"
But I said "It won't hurt me, I'll just step inside
And sit as far back as I can "

        But something Got ahold of me, praise God
        Yes something Got ahold of me
        I went there to fight, but I'll tell you that night
        God certainly Got hold of me

They sang like they meantit, they all clapped their hands
I said it's emotion, that's all
When they get down to pray, I'll just get up and leave
For I don't want to be seen here at all

But about that time he got started to preach
And he looked right straight down at me
He told everybody how mean that I was
Didn't talk like he thought much of me

        * Refrain

I sat in my seat just thinking it o'er
And then they all started to pray
The fire fell from Heaven, I knelt to the floor
I prayed there, and God had his way

And now then, I know that I don't need to doubt
For I got an experience that night
I'll never forget it as long as I live
I found that salvation was right

        * Refrain
