COME ALONG, SINNERS.
Copyright, 1881, by Rosenfeld & White.

Oh, what will you do when de great day's a-comin'?
How am you gwine for to speckerlate,
When we's a found all you darkies a-lookin'
To lift de latch ob de golden gate?
Dat am de time you'll get left out, sinner.
Dat am de time you'll get left out late;
Dat am de time you will get no dinner.
And be locked from de golden gate.

Chorus.
Come along, sinners, come along, sinners,
Come along, sinners, a-hoopin " ;
Come along, sinners, come along, sinners.
Come along, sinners, to glory.

Oh, what will you do when de bellss am a-ringin'?
What will you do while de angels wait,
When you'se a called for to pass in your razors.
And stand stiff-kneed for de golden gate?
Dat am de time you'll get left out, sinner,
Dat am de time you'll get left out late;
Hurry along or you'll get no dinner,
And be locked from de golden gate.-Chorus.

Oh, what will you do when ole Satan's a-comin'?
What will you do when he hunts his match,
When you'se a-hearin' de fire a-sizzing,
And can't get nigh to de golden latch?
Dat am de time you'll get took in, sinner,
Dat am de time you'll get left out late;
Dat am de time you will get yo' dinner
Underneath ob de golden gate.-Chorus.
