Lay down, my dear brothers, lay down and take your rest
Won't you lay your head down on your saviour's breast
I love you, but Jesus loves you the best
And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

Lay down, my dear sisters, friends, (name: "Spence"), etc.
Well, one of these mornings, bright, early, and soon
Good night, good night, good night
Not a cricket, not a spirit going to shout me on
Gonna walk through the valley of the shadow of Death
The rod and staff shall comfort me
Jesus and Moses shall follow me on
Well, John Divine said, I saw the sign
John said, I saw a number of signs
Tell an A for the Ark, that wonderful boat
She build it on the land, gettin' water to float her
Give a B for the Beast at the ending of the world
Gonna eat up all the children that would not be good
I remember right well, I remember right well
Gonna walk in Jerusalem just like John

First heard from Any Old Time at the 1980 Harbor College Folk
Festival; learned from the Real Bahamas record. Divine is pronounced,
de wine, and Valley of the Shadow of Death is, walley o'
the shadder o' death. JN
