GOING TO SET DOWN AND REST AWHILE


Going to set down and rest awhile
When my good Lord calls me

Sister Mary went to heaven
And she went there to stay
And she didn’t go to come back no more

She sang a song that the angels couldn’t sing
“Hosanna, carry on”

Little children, don’t you moan,
When my good Lord calls me.
O, Zion !
When my good Lord calls me
