Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
So when you come to Jordan
And you can't get across, Never mind chillun
There's a way to cross; The Lord am good
And the Lord am kind, And a way over Jordan
He am sure to find; And keep right on
In the promise of the Lord, And wait till you come
To a chariot ford.
THE WHITE ANGELS
Mammy, am the angels always white? Lisped a little chile one bedtime night, And the Mammy answered in affright Hush! my chile, and say good night.
Mammy why am the angels always white? Said the little chile one bedtime night. And the Mammy answered in affright Hush! my chile, and say good night.
For if the angels am always white I'll never be an angel in your sight, And the Mammy answered in affright Hush! my chile, and say good night.
