Put John on the Island

cho: Hail, hail, put John on the islan',
     Hail, hail, weep-a low, Judgment's comin'

You got Jesus, hold Him fast,
     Weep-a low, Judgment's comin',
The grace of God you shall receive,
     Weep-a low, Judgment's comin'.

Didn't know Christ was into the field,
Till I heard the rumblin' of the chariot wheel.

Goin' down Jordan to pay my fare,
Have a little meetin' when I gits there.

Goin' up to Heaven, don't want to stop,
Don't want to be no stumblin' block,

From Religious Folks Songs of the Negro, Fenner
