FOLK BONO OF THE AMERICAN NEGRO.
2. Going to chatter with the angels,
Soon-a in the morning, Chatter with the angels,
Soon-a in the morning, Chatter with the angels,
Soon-a in the morning, And I hope I'll join the band.
Chorus Oh, Lord, have mercy on me, etc.
SONGS OF LOVE.
'I Know the Lord's Laid His Hands on Me."
Chorus
Oh, I know the Lord,
I know the Lord,
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me.
1.   I'm born of God I know I am,
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me, Been new born by the dying Lamb,
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me.
Chorus Oh, I know the Lord, etc.
2.   He took me from the miry clay,
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me, And told me to walk the narrow way,
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me.
Chorus
Oh, I know the Lord, etc.
3.   I never felt such love before,
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me, Saying, "Go in peace and sin no more,"
I know the Lord has laid His hands on me.
Chorus Oh, I know the Lord, etc.
