Negro Poems, Melodies
THE OLD COLORED MINISTER
Old and gray and bowed with years The old colored minister in the church appears, And he raises his eyes, and he raises his hand And the congregation rise, and the congregation
stand, And the minister preach, and the minister pray World without end from day to day.
And he tells the story of the long lost sheep And his hearers smile, and his hearers weep, And the congregation rise, and the congregation
stand; And the congregation sing with the book in the hand; And the minister preach, and the minister pray World without end from day to day.
And the old and young, and the young and old
Hear from his lips those words of gold,
And the congregation rise, and the congregation
stand; And they feel the clasp of his trembling hand; And the minister preach, and the minister pray World without end from day to day.
And he preaches the sermon over the dead
And he says the words that makes them wed,
And the congregation rise, and the congregation
stand; Doing the will of the Lord's command, And the minister preach, and the minister pray World without end from day to day.
