Before I’d be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave.
And go home to my Father and be saved.

O what weeping, O what weeping,
O what weeping over, me, over me. [Refrain]

Weeping Mary, weeping Mary,
Weeping Mary, weep no more, weep no more. [Refrain]

Doubting Thomas, doubting Thomas,
Doubting Thomas, doubt no more, doubt no more. [Refrain]

Great Jehovah, Great Jehovah,
Great Jehovah, over all, over all. [Refrain]
