I'm sometimes up, I'm sometimes down, Trouble will bury me down

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 I'm sometimes up, I'm sometimes down,
Trouble will bury me down;
But still my soul feels heav'nly bound,
Trouble will bury me down; O bretheren.

Refrain:
Poor me, Poor me
Trouble will bury me down,
Poor me, Poor me,
Trouble will bury me down.

2 Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Trouble will bury me down;
The Lord is on the giving hand,
Trouble will bury me down. O bretheren, [Refrain]

3 Sometimes I think I'm ready to drop,
Trouble will bury me down;
But thank my Lord, I do not stop,
Trouble will bury me down. O bretheren! [Refrain]
