RIDE ON, MOSES
Spiritual

1
Solo
I've been traveling all this day,
Cho.
Ride on, Moses,
Solo
To hear the good folks sing and pray,
Cho.
Want to go home in the morning,
Solo
They pray'd so long I couldn't wait,
Cho.
Ride on, Moses,
Solo
I knew the Lord would walk that way,
Cho.
Want to go home in the morning.

Full Chorus-
Then ride on, ride on, ride on, Moses
Ride on King Emanuel,
Want to go home in the morning.

2
When I got there Satan was there,
Ride on, Moses,
I'm going to take the golden car,
Want to go home in the morning,
I lay my old sins on the shelf,
Ride on, Moses,
And stand right up and shake myself,
Want to go home in the morning.

Chorus-

3
Have your garments nice and clean,
Ride on, Moses,
-So them slippers can be seen,
Want to go home in the morning,
I'll take the trumpet in my hand,
Ride on, Moses,
And then I'll join that happy band,
Want to go home in the morning.

Chorus-

With musical score, p. 79.
