Soon-a will be done-a with the troubles of the world,
Troubles of the world,
The troubles of the world.
Soon-a will be done-a with the troubles of the world.
Goin' home to live with God.

No more weeping and a-wailing,
No more weeping and a-wailing,
I'm goin' to live with God. [Refrain]

I want to meet my mother,
I want to meet my mother,
I'm goin' to live with God. [Refrain]

I want to meet my Jesus,
I want to meet my Jesus,
I'm goin' to live with God. [Refrain]
