The Sounds of Silas

This song is by ApologetiX and appears on the album Radical History Tour (1994) and on the album Apol-Acoustix (2005).

This song is a parody of "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel.
Paul and Silas, the Bible says
Had come to talk to the Phillipians
Because of a vision of a man speaking
Came to Paul while he was sleeping
And the vision of the Macedonian man said to him:
"Come help us, Paul and Silas"

In Acts 16, they walked around
And tried to get to know the town
Went to pray down by the river
They met a lady there named Lydia
They baptized her there and she asked "If it be all right, come spend the night
And stay a while at my house"

They met a slave girl later on
Who made her masters quite a lot
Fortune-telling was her occupation
She had a spirit of divination
It was driven out when Paul said Jesus' name, but then they came
And arrested Paul and Silas

Threw them right into the jail
Paul and Silas' faith prevailed
Prisoners at midnight heard them
Praising God that they were Christ's servants
Then an earthquake came and split the cell
And let go from the cell Paul and Silas

And the jailer bowed and prayed
"What must I do to be saved?"
And they said "Believe in the Lord Jesus
And you will receive his forgiveness"
Paul and Silas taught the word of the Gospel to him and his entire house, and everyone now
Is in Heaven with Paul and Silas
