  • All ill-fated sorts
    Who sleep on doorsteps and in alleyways
    Take a stumble to the corner
    There's heavenly music playin'

    No more taking recreation
    With your dark defeated friends
    They who seek the consolation of the bottle
    Never win

    Soap, soup and salvation
    Tired hearts sing in jubilation
    Restoration at the rescue mission
    Soap, soup and salvation

    Well, Brother Randall is a bit
    Long winded and a little loud
    And as he pounds the pulpit
    The sweat flies from his brow

    Making sure none are caught slumbering
    In this mournful motley crowd
    For the ones that stay awake
    Are therefore graciously endowed with...

    Soap, soup and salvation
    Tired hearts sing in jubilation
    Restoration at the rescue mission
    Soap, soup and salvation

    Procter & Gamble
    Campbell's gospel
    Watch Brother Randall wave that bible

    Bein' drunk and hungry
    Seemed like more fun cause
    They don't feed no one
    Til' all this preachin's done, oh no

    I just thought I heard the choir singing
    My old favorite song
    That old harmony is still familiar
    Though it's been so long

    Lonely faces, and empty glances
    They surround me everywhere
    But those sweet angelic voices
    Are now rising through the air...

    "When the roll is called up yonder"
    "When the roll is called up yonder"
    "When the roll is called up yonder"
    "When the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there"
    With...

    Soap, soup and salvation
    Tired hearts sing in jubilation
    Restoration at the rescue mission
    Soap, soup and salvation
    With...

    Soap, soup and salvation
    Tired hearts sing in jubilation
    Restoration at the rescue mission
    Soap, soup and salvation
