by the Dixie Hummingbirds, who only a few years ago recorded

for their excellent album "Diamond Jublilation" a track which

was then also included on the soundtrack album of "Masked and Anonymous";

their fine version of Bob Dylan's unrecorded gem from 1980, "City Of Gold".

Christian's Automobile
Dixie Hummingbirds



Oh you know that every child, every child of God

Is running for Jesus, just like an automobile

Every child, every child of God

Running for Jesus, just like an automobile

Every child, every child of God

Running for Jesus, just like an automobile

Prayer is your driver's license

Faith is your steering wheel

When you get on your road to glory

Satan is gonna try to flag you down

But keep on driving

If you want your starry crown

You gotta check on your tires

You got a rough road ahead

And when you are weary from your journey

God will put you to bed

You've gotta check on your brakes

And stop your wicked ways

A man as born of a woman

Is only of a few days

You've gotta check on your lights

And see your own faults

Stop while you can see them, children

Or your soul will be lost

You gotta check on your generator

You need more strength and power

You can't do nothing without the Man

You need Him every hour

Christians, oh Christians, press on your starter

And start your automobile

Put in first gear and go on up the hill

Drive on children if I never see you no more

I'll meet you when I pull in on the other shore

I'm not worried about my parking space

I just want to see, see my Savior face to face

You know prayer is your driver's license

Faith is your steering wheel
