Oh, when-a my blood runs chilly an' col', Ise got to go,
Ise got to go, Ise got to go; Oh, when-a my blood runs chilly an' coP, Ise got to go,
Way beyond de moon.
Chorus:
Do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me, Oh, do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me, Oh, do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me, Oh, do, Lord, remember me.
Ef you cain't bear no crosses, you cain't wear no crown, Ef you cain't bear no crosses, you cain't wear no crown,
Ef you cain't bear no crosses, you cain't wear no crown, Way beyond de moon.
Ise got a mother * in de Beulah land, she's callin' me,
She's callin' me, she's callin' me, Ise got a mother in de Beulah land, she's callin' me,
Way beyon' de sun*
De harder yo' crosses, de brighter yo' crown,t De harder yo' crosses, de brighter yo' crown,
De harder yo' crosses, de brighter yo' crown, Way beyon' de moon.
# Sung also for father, brother, sister, etc.
t Or, Right under your cross, there lies your crown.
[6n]
