Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

88. O Mary, Don't You Weep

Refrain:
O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn,
O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn;
Pharaoh's army got drownded, O Mary, don't you weep.

1 One of these mornings bright and fair,
goin'a take my wings and cleave the air;
Pharaoh's army got drowneded, O Mary, don't you weep. [Refrain]

2 When I get to heaven goin'a sing and shout,
ain't nobody there goin'a turn me out;
Pharaoh's army got drowneded, O Mary, don't you weep. [Refrain]

3 When I get to heaven goin'a put on my shoes,
goin'a run about and spread the news;
Pharaoh's army got drowneded, O Mary, don't you weep. [Refrain]
