Mary, do you see your babe?
Give you a holy name
Jesus Christ will someday
Rise from his grave

Joseph the carpenter
Build us a brand new church
Build it strong, build it firm
The savior is near

Mary, with your tears in your hair
Pick yourself up, just don't care
No use for cryin'
When the savior is here

Some say for The Lord's sake
Is but our own mistake
Heathens, well, they hide their face
Scared as they may

You lot are falling deep
Way beyond The Lord's keep
For every sin you sow
So shall you reap

Peter, with your love so strong
Hear me when I sing this song
Show me from right or wrong
Just point the way

Lordy, see your head hung low
You fill me from head to toe
Grace flowing in my bones
Join in the fray

Sinners, you foul men
Builders of the serpent's den
Your time has come to end
Repent while you can

Big Oak Iowa City, Iowa

Big Oak is an experimental folk band from Iowa City started in 2014. They tend to think really big and put over 30 tracks in each song, without neglecting to find some unique instruments and sounds to throw in as well. In theory, it sounds like a mess... and it is, but they're pretty proud of it.
