"LISTEN TO THE LAMBS
"

from « American Negro Songs »
by J. W. Work, 1940

O
Listen to the lambs
All a-crying
Listen to the lambs
All a-crying
Listen to the lambs
All a-crying
I want to go to Heaven when I die

 Come on sister with your ups and downs
Want to go to Heaven when I die
Angels waiting for to give you a crown
Want to go to Heaven when I die

 Come on sister and don’t be shame
Want to go to Heaven when I die
Angels waiting for to write your name
Want to go to Heaven when I die

 Mind out brother how you walk the cross
Want to go to Heaven when I die
Foot might slip and your soul get lost
Want to go to Heaven when I die
