Representative Text

1 You may tell them, father, when you see them –
I'm a poor, mourning Pilgrim,
I'm bound for Canaan's land.
You may tell them, mother, when you see them –
I'm a poor mourning Pilgrim,
I'm bound for Canaan's land.

Refrain:
I weep, and I mourn, and I move slowly on,
I'm a poor mourning Pilgrim,
I'm bound for Canaan's land.

2 You may tell them, brother, when you see them –
I'm a poor mourning Pilgrim,
I'm bound for Canaan's land.
You may tell them, sisters, when you see them –
I'm a poor mourning Pilgrim,
I'm bound for Canaan's land. [Refrain]
