It came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the Lord came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looking out at a window saw king David dancing and playing: and she despised him in her heart.@1 Chronicles 15:29

David Bringing the Ark into Jerusalem

When David danced before the Lord,
The ark was coming up the road;
His wife despised him in her heart;
The ark was coming up the road.

Refrain

It’s coming, hallelujah!
The ark is coming up the road;
It’s coming, hallelujah!
The ark is coming up the road.

I do believe without a doubt—
The ark is coming up the road—
God’s children have a right to shout—
The ark is coming up the road.

Refrain

Sing on, pray on, we’re gaining ground;
The ark is coming up the road;
The pow’r of God is coming down;
The ark is coming up the road.
