"Feel Like a Motherless Child."
Chorus
I feel like, I feel like a motherless child, I feel like, I feel like a motherless child, I feel like, I feel like a motherless child, Glory Hallelujah!

Glory Hallelujah! By the Grace of God I'll follow on, Glory Hallelujah!
Chorus I feel like, I feel like a motherless child�
2.   Sometimes my way is sad and lone,
Glory Hallelujah! I'm far away and lost from home, Glory Hallelujah!
Chorus I feel like, I feel like a motherless child�
"Live a Humble."
Chorus
Live a humble, humble, Humble yourself. The bells done rung, Live a humble, humble, Humble yourself. The bells done rung.
1.   You see God, you see God, You see God 'n the morning,
He'll come a-riding down the line of time, Fire'll be falling, He'll be calling, Come to judg-a-ment-a-come.
Chorus Live a humble, humble, etc.
2.   Oh, the bells done rung, And the songs done sung,
And a-don't let it catch you with your work undone.
Chorus Live a humble, humble, etc.
