Lyr. Add: RUN TO JESUS
Spiritual; Jubilee Singers

Chorus-
Run to Jesus, shun the danger,
I don't expect to stay much longer here.

1
He will be our dearest friend,
And will help us to the end,
I don't expect to stay much longer here.
Chorus-
2
Oh, I thought I heard them say,
There were lions in the way,
I don't expect to stay much longer here.
Chorus-

3
Many mansions there will be,
One for you and one for me,
I don't expect to stay much longer here.
Chorus-

"This song was given to the Jubilee Singers by Hon. Frederick Douglass, at Washington, D. C., with the interesting statement, that it first suggested to him the thought of escaping from slavery."
Note preceeding the musical score. Score 4/4.
