Heav'n boun' soldier --
Joshua fit de battle ob Jerico --
We am clim'in' Jacob's ladder --

Swing low sweet chariot --
Up on de mountain --
Little David play on yo' harp --

Dere's no hidin' place down dere --
Gimme dat ol'-time religion --
Lis'en to de lam's --

Stan' still Jordan --
Somebody's knocken at yo' do' --
Singin' wid a sword in ma han' --
I couldn't hear nobody pray --
My way's cloudy --
It's me, O, Lord --
I got a home in-a dat rock --

Who'll be a witness for my Lord? --
Keep a-inchin' along --
Where shall I be when de firs' trumpet soun'? --
Peter, go ring dem bells --
Nobody knows de trouble I see --
Ev'ry time I feel de Spirit --
Father Abraham --
I'm a-rollin' --
Didn't my Lord deliver Daniel? --
O, wasn't dat a wide river? --
Keep me f'om sinkin' down --
De band o' Gideon --
John saw the holy number --
Give me Jesus --
My Lord, what a mornin' --
O, rocks don't fall on me --
Done foun' my los' sheep --
What yo' gwine to do when yo' lamp burn down? --
Hallelujah! --

You may bury me in de eas' --
You got a right --
Weary traveler.
