Magnificent Sanctuary Band

Lyrics: Dorsey Burnette
Music: Dorsey Burnette

Included on the Jerry Garcia studio box set "All Good Things". Played live at least once by the JGB with Keith and Donna on 23 December 1976, where it's listed in DeadBase as 'Singing In The Band'.

The multitides of people dying
'Cause they won't see and try to understand
From the Book I read, not one but all must follow
Join the magnificent sanctuary band

There are multitudes of people dying
Their temptation hangs over the land
In fact those people should just remember his command
And join the magnificent sanctuary band

Singing in the band, talking to the man
Bringing in the sheep all over the world just as fast as he can
Singing in the band, talking to the man
Stop everything you're doing and join the sanctuary band

The Son of Man speaks of Revelations
And he's reaching, reaching out his hand
With his promise of salvation
Join the magnificent sanctuary band
