Refrain:
Before this time another year I may be gone,
Our in some lonely graveyard, O Lord, how long?

1 My mother's broke the ice and gone,
O Lord, how long?
By the grace of God I'll follow on,
O Lord, how long? [Refrain]

2 My father's broke the ice and gone,
O Lord, how long?
By the grace of God I'll follow on,
O Lord, how long? [Refrain]

3 My Saviour's broke the ice and gone,
O Lord, how long?
By the grace of God I'll follow on,
O Lord, how long? [Refrain]
