Lyr. Add: GWINE UP (Spiritual)

Oh, yes, I'm gwine up, gwine up, gwine all de way, Lord,
Gwine up, gwine up, to see de heabenly lan'.

Oh,- saints an' sinners will-a you go,
See de heabenly lan',
I'm-a gwine up to heab'n, fo' to see my robe,
See de heabenly lan',
Gwine to see my robe an' try it on,
See de heabenly lan',
It am brighter den-a dat glitterin' sun,
See de heabenly lan'.

Oh, yes, I'm Gwine up, gwine up, gwine all de way, Lord,
Gwine up, gwine up to see de heabenly lan'.


Oh,- gwine to keep-a climin' high,
See de heabenly lan',
Till I meet dem-a angels in-a de sky,
See de heabenly lan',
Dem-a snow white angels I shall see,
See de heabenly lan',
Den de debil am-a gwine to let-a me be,
See de heabenly lan'.

Oh, yes, I'm Gwine up, gwine up, gwine up all de way, Lord,
Gwine up, gwine up to see de heabenly lan'.

Book 1, pp. 118-119, with musical score.
