LIttle black train is a comin'. Songs fo heaven and resurrection: Oh, Mary, oh, Marthy --
When I'm gone --
'Way in the kingdom --
Some o' these days --
Heaven is a beautiful place --
I'll be sleepin' in my grave. Bible stories in song: My God He is a Man of war --
I mean to lift up a standard for my King --
Ezekiel's wheel --
Mary wept an' Marthy moaned --
I believe I'll go back home --
John done saw dat numbah. Songs of exhortation: It may be de las' time --
Oh sinner --
Walk about elders --
Git yo' ticket --
Come unto me --
Yo' sins are gonna find you out --
Time is drawn' nigh. Songs of service and personal experience: I'm an everyday witness --
In the army of the Lord --
I wanta live so God can use me --
I got mah sword in mah han' --
Hide-a me --
Do Lord remember me --
In this field --
Wring my hands and cry --
Wish I was in heabum settin' down --
I stood outside the gate --
Steal away to mah Fathuh's kingdom --
Lawd I want two wings --
If I have mah tickit Lawd. Shouting songs and songs of triumph: I'm runnin' on --
I found Jesus over in Zion --
I got a hidin' place --
No condemnation in my soul --
When Jesus comes --
He's the lily of the valley --
I got a key to the kingdom --
Let the church roll on.
