Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Refrain:
O, I couldn’t hear nobody pray,
O Lord, I 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]
