Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

Refrain:
I feel like, I feel like,
I feel like my time ain't long,
I feel like, I feel like,
I feel like my time ain't long.

1 Went to the graveyard the other day,
I feel like my time ain't long,
I look'd at the place where my mother lay,
I feel like my time ain't long. [Refrain]

2 Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down,
I feel like my time ain't long,
And sometimes I'm almost on the ground,
I feel like my time ain't long. [Refrain]

3 Mind out, my brother how you walk on the cross,
I feel like my time ain't long,
Your foot might slip and your soul get lost,
I feel like my time ain't long. [Refrain]

Folk Songs of the American Negro (No. 1), 1907
