CHORUS:
Oh, Lord, Oh, my Lord!
Oh, my good Lord!
Keep me from sinking down.

1. I tell you what I mean to do;
Keep me from sinking down:
I mean to go to heaven too;
Keep me from sinking down.

CHORUS.

2. I look up yonder, and what do I see;
Keep me from sinking down:
I see the angels beckoning to me;
Keep me from sinking down.

CHORUS.

3. When I was a mourner just like you;
Keep me from sinking down:
I mourned and mourned till I get through;
Keep me from sinking down.

CHORUS.

4. I bless the Lord I'm gwine to die;
Keep me from sinking down:
I'm gwine to judgment by-and-by;
Keep me from sinking down.

CHORUS.
