The foxes, they have holes in the ground

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 The foxes, they have holes in the ground,
The birds have nests in the air,
The Christians have a hiding place,
But sinners ain't got nowhere.

Refrain:
Now ain't them hard trials, great tribulations?
Ain't them hard trials?
I'm bound to leave this land.

2 Oh, Methodist, Methodist is my name,
Methodist till I die,
Been baptized on the Methodist side,
And a Methodist will I die. [Refrain]

3 Oh, Baptist, Baptist is my name,
Baptist till I die,
Been baptized on the Baptist side,
And a Baptist will I die. [Refrain]
