Contents: A wheel in a wheel --
Babylon's fallin' --
Band ob Gideon --
Bright sparkles in de churchyard --
But he ain't comin' here t' die no mo' --
By and by --
Children, we all shall be free --
Come down, sinner --
Daniel saw the stone --
De church of God --
Deep river --
De ole ark a-moverin' along --
De ole sheep done know de road --
Dere's a little wheel a-turnin' in my heart --
De winter'll soon be ober --
Did you hear how dey crucified my Lord? --
Don't be weary, traveller --
Don't call de roll --
Don't get weary --
Don't leave me, Lord --
Don't you view dat ship a-come a-sailin'! --
Down by the river --
Dust an' ashes --
Ef you want to get to hebben --
Ev'ry time I feel the spirit --
Ezekiel saw de wheel --
Fighting on --
Git on board, little children --
Go down, Moses --
Going to heaven --
Goin' to shout all over God's heav'n --
Go, Mary, an' toll de bell --
Good Lord, shall I ever be de one? --
Good news, de chariot's comin' --
Go tell it on de mountain --
Grace before meat at Hampton --
Gwine to live humble to de Lord --
Gwine up --
Hail! hail! hail! --
Hard trials --
Hear de angels singin' --
Hear de lambs a-cryin' --
He is King of Kings --
He's the lily of the valley --
I ain't goint' study war no more --
I am goin' to join in this army --
I am seekin' for a city --
I couldn't hear nobody pray --
I don't want to stay here no longer --
If you love God, serve him --
I heard from heaven to-day --
I heard the preaching of the elder --
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me --
I'll be there in the morning --
I'm a-rolling --
I'm a-trav'ling to the grave --
I'm gwine to jine de great 'sociation --
I'm so glad trouble don't last alway --
I'm troubled in mind --
In bright mansions above --
In dat great gittin'-up mornin' --
In that beautiful world on high --
In the kingdom --
I've been a-list'ning all de night long --
I've been toilin' at de hill --
I've got a mother in de heaven --
I want to be ready --
I would like to read --
Jerusalem mornin' --
John saw --
Judgment --
Keep a-inchin' along --
Keep me from sinkin' down --
King Emanuel --
Leanin' on de Lord --
L'envoi --
Let de heaven light sine on me --
Let us cheer the weary traveler --
Let us praise him --
Like a rough and rolling sea --
Listen to de lambs --
Little David, play on your harp --
Live humble --
Look away --
Lord, have mercy --
Lord, I want to be a Christian --
Lord, until I reach my home --
Most done trabelling --
Mother, is massa gwine to sell us? --
My Lord delibered Daniel --
My Lord's a-riding all the time --
My Lord, what a morning! --
My soul wants something that's new --
My way's cloudy --
Nobody knows de trouble I've seen --
No more auction block --
Oh, de downward road is crowded --
Oh, de hebben is shinin'! --
Oh, freedom! --
Oh, give way, Jordan --
Oh, he raise-a poor Lazarus --
Oh, Jerusalem --
Oh, religion is a fortune --
Oh, sinner, you'd better get ready! --
Oh, stand the storm --
Oh, the rocks and the mountains --
Oh, wasn't dat a wide ribber? --
Oh, when I get t' heaven --
Oh, yes! --
Oh, yes, yonder comes my Lord --
Ole-time religion --
Peter on the sea --
Pilgrim's song --
Poor pilgrim --
Prayer is de key of heaven --
Put John on de islan' --
'Raslin' Jacob --
Reign, Massa Jesus --
Ride on --
Ride on, Jesus --
Rise an' shine --
Rise up, shepherd, an' foller --
Roll de ole chariot along --
Roll, Jordan, roll --
Run, Mary, run --
Run to Jesus --
See fo' and twenty elders --
Seek and ye shall find --
Slav'ry chain --
Somebody's knocking at your door --
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child --
Soon I will be done --
Stars in the elements --
Stay in de field --
Steal away to Jesus --
Sweet Canaan --
Sweet turtle dove --
Swing low, chariot --
Swing low, sweet chariot --
Tell Jesus --
There is a balm in Gilead --
There's a meeting here to-night --
There were ten virgins --
They look like men of war --
'Tis me --
'Tis the ole ship of Zion --
View de land --
Walk togedder, childron --
Walk you in de light --
Want to go to heaven when I die --
We are almost home --
We are building on a rock --
We are climbing Jacob's ladder --
We are walking in de light --
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? --
What yo' gwine t' do when de lamp burn down? --
When the general roll is called --
Where shall I be when de firs' trumpet soun'? --
Who'll jine de Union? --
Why, he's the Lord of Lords --
Wonder where is good ole Daniel --
You goin' to reap jus' what you sow --
Zion, weep a-low.
