BEFORE I’D BE A SLAVE (OH, FREEDOM)

from « Old Plantation Hymns »
by William E. Barton, 1899

Before I’d be a slave
I’d be buried in my grave
And go home to my Lord
And be saved

O, what preachin’!
O, what preachin’!
O, what preachin’ over me, over me

O, what mourning…

O, what singing…

O, what shouting…

O, weeping Mary…

Doubting Thomas…

O, what sighing

O, Freedom…
