Gwine to Cross de River Bye-and-Bye
Composed by W. McNamara.

Oh! white folks listen while I sing to you a song ­l'se gwine to cross de river bye-aud-bye;
And I hope I won't detain you long­I'so gwine to cross de river bye-aud-bye.
Oh! de angel Gabriel, blowing on his horn­I'se gwine to cross de river bye-and-bye;
"Wake up all de niggers on de judgment morn­I*96 gwine to cross de river bye-and-bye.

Chorus.
Den shout for glory, shout for glory, children­I'm gwine to get on de gospel train,
To cross o'er de river bye-aud-bye.

I'm gwine to ballelujah, for to wear a glory crown-
And I'm gwine to cross de river bye-and-bye:
Make all you sinners come a 'tumbling down-.
I'se gwine to cross de river bve-and bye.
Oli! de golden cbariot am awaiting for you all­I'se gwine to cross de river bye-aud-bye;
Take ail on board from de large to de small­l'se gwine to cross de river hye-and-byc.-Chorus.

Oh! de angel Gabriel lives in de sky­I'se gwine to cross de river bye-and-bye;
And I hope I'll go dere when I die­I'se gwine to cross de river bye-and bye.
For de good people go dere without any cost­I'se gwiue to cross de river bye-and-bye;
And de bad ones surely will get lost­I'se gwine to cross de river bye-aud-bye.-Chorus.
