Lyr. Add: DE DAY OB LIBERTY'S COMIN'
G. F. Wurzel, 1862

1
Darkey's don't you see de light,
De day ob Liberty's comin',
Almost gone de gloomy night,
De day ob Liberty's comin'.
High: ho: de darkeys sing,
Loud! Loud! dar voices ring,
Good news de Lord he bring
"Now let my people go."

Chorus-
Just you look and see dat light:
De day ob Liberty's comin', comin',
Almost gone de gloomy night,
De day ob Liberty's comin'.

2
De Union folks dey wait so long,
We tink dey neber was comin', comin',
And Se-cesh he got so strong
We tink dey neber was comin'.
Now Uncle Abe he say Come
Massa while you may,
And for de slave we'll pay,
For we must let him go.

3
White folks let us help ye trou,
De day ob Liberty's comin', comin',
We can fight and die for you,
De day ob Liberty's comin'.
Yes! Yes! we'll shout and sing,
Loud! Loud! our voices ring,
Soon: Soon: de mighty King
Will let his people go.

4
O de Lord will bring it right
De day ob Liberty's comin', comin',
From de drefful bloody fight
De day ob Liberty's comin'.
Shout, darkeys, shout and sing,
Loud let your voices ring,
Soon! Soon! de mighty King
Will let his people go,

The title is incorrectly given as "Day of Liberty" on a recent cd.
