"The Trouble of the World" in Slave Songs is a different song, with interestingly the line "Roll Jordan Roll" in it. Mahalia's is a version of what is more commonly called "Soon I[Ah] Will Be Done" posted by Sorcha above, though her slow-tempo singing style are unique. Another gospel version is by Five Blind Boys of Mississippi. This song is also in the repertoire of concert-spiritual singers and choirs: Jessye Norman, Barbara Conrad, Robet Shaw Chorale, and Roger Wagner Chorale.
