FIGHTING ON! HALLELUJAH!
Spiritual

(Slow. First time only)
Fighting on! hallelujah!
We are almost down to the shore.
(Fighting on ......)

Chorus-
Fighting on, fighting on, hallelujah!
We are almost down to the shore!

1
Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Jesus died for ev'ry man,
We are almost down to the shore.
He died for me, He died for you,
He died to set the whole world free,
We are almost down to the shore.
2
If religion was a thing that money could buy,
The rich would live and the poor would die,
We are almost down to the shore.
But my good Lord has fixed it so,
The rich and the poor together must go,
We are almost down to the shore.

Arr. by R. H. H.
Anon., 1887, Jubilee and Plantation Songs. Characteristic Favorites, as sung by the Hampton Students, Jubilee Singers, Fisk University Srudents, and other Concert Companies.
Boston, Oliver Ditson Company, copyright 1887.

The above is printed with musical score, p. 53.

Was there any use of a variant as a labor song? I seem to recall one, but can't locate it.
