Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
ELIJAH RING THAT BELL
I heard the good Lord calling,
I heard the good Lord say, Elijah stands a waiting
To show me on my way; I do not fear the journey
All through the night and day When I know Elijah's waiting
To show me on my way.
Elijah! Elijah! Elijah! ring that bell,
Elijah! Elijah! Elijah! ring that bell,
I'm going over the river, but when I cannot tell;
Oh! oh! Elijah! Elijah! ring that bell.
My soul is ready waiting
To go and see my Lord, I do not fear his anger,
I do not fear his sword; He called me on my journey
And he told me not to stay, And he said the angel Elijah
Would show me on my way.
Elijah! Elijah! Elijah! ring that bell,
Elijah! Elijah! Elijah! ring that bell,
I'm going over the river, but when I cannot tell,
Oh! oh! Elijah! Elijah! ring that bell.
