TREASURER’S REPORT TO CANDACE, QUEEN OF THE ETHIOPIANS
words and music by Jonathan Rundman
cp 2001 Salt Lady Music (ASCAP)

lyrics

I was riding in my chariot, reading thru the scrolls
Leaving old Jerusalem, headed for home
Got the words of Isaiah runnin’ thru my head
About the lamb to the slaughter that ends up dead
Now, I didn’t know how to read it, it was some kind of code
And then a local comes walkin’ up the wilderness road
He asks what I’m reading and can he read it too
Oh my Queen Candace have I got news for you

Well, I know all about the economy
And the Ethiopian treasury
And taxes and budgets and finances
But I never heard nothing like this story of his
We read thru the book and it all made sense
He was a witness to the evidence
The prophecy fulfilled and the words were true
Oh my Queen Candace have I got news for you

Yeah, the lamb went to slaughter, but that wasn’t the end
Life rises out of death again
And freedom is a free gift from above
I get a picture of grace and a picture of love
So I stopped by chariot by the riverside
Got down in the water and there I died
And I came up clean and I came up new
Oh my Queen Candace have I got news for you
