486. Oh, Freedom

1 Oh, freedom!
Oh, freedom!
Oh, freedom over me!
And before I'd be a slave,
I'll be buried in my grave,
And go home to my Lord and be free.

2 No more moaning,
No more moaning,
No more moaning over me!
And before I'd be a slave,
I'll be buried in my grave,
And go home to my Lord and be free.

3 There'll be singing,
There'll be singing,
There'll be singing over me!
And before I'd be a slave,
I'll be buried in my grave,
And go home to my Lord and be free.

4 There'll be shouting,
There'll be shouting,
There'll be shouting over me!
And before I'd be a slave,
I'll be buried in my grave,
And go home to my Lord and be free.

5 There'll be praying,
There'll be praying,
There'll be praying over me!
And before I'd be a slave,
I'll be buried in my grave,
And go home to my Lord and be free.
