Refrain:
O rocks, don't fall on me,
O rocks, don't fall on me,
O rocks, don't fall on me,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me.

1 Look over yonder on Jerichos' wall,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me;
And see those sinners tremble and fall,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me. [Refrain]

2 In-a that great, great judgment-day,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me'
The sinners will run to the rocks and say,
"Rocks and mountains, please fall on me."

O rocks, please fall on me!
O rocks, please fall on me!
O rocks, please fall on me!
Rocks and mountains, please fall on me!

3 When every star refuses to shine,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me;
I know King Jesus will-a be mine,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me. [Refrain]

4 The trump shall sound, and the dead shall rise,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me;
And go to mansions in-a the skies,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me. [Refrain]
