Refrain:
Climbin’ up d’mountain, children.
Didn’t come here for to stay.
If ah nevermore see you again,
gonna meet you at d’judgment day

1 Hebrew children in de fiery furnace.
And dey begin to pray,
And de good Lawd smote dat fiyah out.
Oh, wasn’t dat a mighty day!
Good Lawd, wasn’t dat a mighty day! (refrain)

2 Daniel went in de lion’s den,
And he begin to pray,
And de angel of de Lawd locked de lion’s jaw.
Oh, wasn’t dat a mighty day!
Good Lawd, wasn’t dat a mighty day! (refrain)
