2194. O Freedom

1 O freedom! O freedom!
O freedom over me.

Refrain:
And before I'll be a slave,
I'd 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. [Refrain]

3 No more weeping, no more weeping,
no more weeping over me. [Refrain]

4 There’ll be singing, there’ll be singing,
there’ll be singing over me. [Refrain]

5 There’ll be shouting, there’ll be shouting,
there’ll be shouting over me. [Refrain]

6 There’ll be praying, there’ll be praying,
there’ll be praying over me. [Refrain]
