I haven't found the lyrics on the web. It was recorded in 1936 by the Heavenly Gospel Singers in 1936. Now on Document 5452, HGS Complete Works vol. 1. It is on The Nashville Bluegrass Band's "Idle Time" album where it is copyright listed as: "Trad." NBB did a lot of black gospel when Mississippian Mike Compton was in the band. Their quartet style then was superb.
