171. I Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray

Refrain:
O, I couldn’t hear nobody pray, (O Lord)
couldn’t hear nobody pray.
O, way down yonder by myself,
And I couldn’t hear nobody pray.

1 In de valley,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
On ma knees,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Wid ma burden,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
An’ ma Savior.
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
O ma Lord, [Refrain]

2 Chilly waters,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
In de Jerden,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Crossin’ over,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Into Canaan.
Couldn’t hear nobody pray, [Refrain]

3 Hallelujah!
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Troubles over
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
In de kingdom,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Wid my Jesus.
Couldn’t hear nobody pray, [Refrain]
