lyrics

My name is Jacob and I am about
Reformation and the Old Order.
I make my living on the homestead
300 miles from the border.
My congregation is obedient,
Our discipleship makes us whole.
It is immoral for me to question
Everything I have been told.
Wash the doubt from my every limb,
But my body is shaking with the guiltiest, guiltiest hymn.

My name is Jacob and I am about
The quiet in the land,
Made staid by those who have striven,
By the Children and the Bread of Heaven.
Despite fire and smoke,
We are the stolid folk,
We have always and will always be here.
But goddamn that girl looks good,
The sin sparkling in her hair.
I'm on my knees with my gaslight dimmed,
And my body is shaking with the guiltiest, guiltiest hymn.

Hold on,
Hold on,
Hold on,
Hold on.

My name is Jacob and I am about
Keeping all my shit straight.
I never stray from the cart,
I keep the psalms book close to my heart.
I am a good boy,
I know I did good.
I do not deserve this punishment.
When the doubt of my saviour
Leaves me broken and bent.
I'm at the point where I cannot see Him,
I'm at the point where I cannot see Him.
My body is shaking with the guiltiest, guiltiest hymn.
My body is shaking with the guiltiest, guiltiest hymn."
My body is shaking with the guiltiest, guiltiest...
