Nora, Nora, let me come in,
Do's' all fast'ned an' de winders pinned,
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,

Can' plow straight an' keep a-lookin' back,"
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
Hold on! Hold on!

Hold on! Hold on! Hold on!
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
Hold on! Hold on!

If you wanna get to Heaven,

Jus' keep yo' han' on de gospel plow,
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
Hold on! Hold on!
If dat plow stays in yo' han' -
It'll lan' you straight into de promised lan'!
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
Hold on! Hold on!

Mary had a golden chain,
Ev'ry link was my Jesus' name -
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
Hold on! Hold on!
Keep on climbin' an' don't you tire -
Ev'ry rung goes high'r an' high'r -
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
Hold on! Hold on!

Oh, Sisters, Hold on!
Oh, Brothers, Hold on!
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,

Oh, Mothers, Hold on!
Oh, Fathers, Hold on!
Keep yo' han' on-a de plow,
