Negro Poems, Melodies
RING THAT BELL
Ring that bell Elijah
And open wide the door,
Oh ring that bell Elijah
And ring that bell once more.
I want my folks to hear it I want my folks to know,
There is a place to go to
And the bell tells where to go.
Oh ring that bell Elijah And open wide the door,
Oh ring that bell Elijah
And ring that bell once more.
WHAT YOU GWINE TO DO
What you gwine to do, dear friends,
What you gwine to do, When the Lord his flaming angel sends
And asks your soul of you; And if your soul is not prepared
To meet the judgment too, What you gwine to do, dear friends,
What you gwine to do. 16
