Poor Little Jesus, Weavers' Song Book

=========================================================
POOR LITTLE JESUS (HAIL, LORD)
Traditional Negro Spiritual


Poor little Jesus, Hail, Lord
Child o'Mary, Hail, Lord
Born in a stable, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a pity, an'a shame

Poor little Jesus, Hail, Lord
Took Him from a manger, Hail, Lord
Took Him from his mother, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a pity, an'a shame

Poor little Jesus, Hail, Lord
They give Him to the Hebrew, Hail, Lord
They spit on His garment, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a pity, an'a shame

Poor little Jesus, Hail, Lord
They bound Him with a halter, Hail, Lord
Whipped Him up the mountain, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a pity, an'a shame

Poor little Jesus, Hail, Lord
They nailed Him to the cross, Hail, Lord
They hung Him with the robber, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a pity, an'a shame.

Brave saviour Jesus, Hail, Lord
Risen from the darkness, Hail, Lord
'Scended into glory, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a wonder an'a joy.

Brave saviour Jesus, Hail, Lord
Meet me in the Kingdom, Hail, Lord
Lead me to my Father, Hail, Lord
Ain't that a wonder, and a joy.

I have a similar song (not sure about the tune similarity) on a tape: Sister Thea, 'Round the Glory Manger Christmas Spirituals.

==============================================

OH, PO' LITTLE JESUS
Traditional Negro Spiritual

Oh, po' little Jesus,
Dis world gone to break yo' heart.
There'll be no place to lay your head, my Lord.
Oh, po' little Jesus.

Oh, oh, Mary she the mother,
Oh, Mary she bow down an' cried,
For there's no place to lay yo' head, my Lord.
Oh, po' little Jesus.

Come down, all you holy angels,
Sing roun' him with your golden harps,
For some day he gone die to save this world.
Oh, po' little Jesus.
Oh, po' little Jesus.

What a great song this is - thanks for the different versions WYSIWYG. I was just listening to Maddy Prior's version last night on the "Carnivals and Capers" album (I think that's what it's called). It's very similar to the second version you posted here, and just gorgeous. I've already started working up a version with voice and octave mandolin.

Love to hear an MP3 of it, Dave!

I lost my Sister Thea tape-- I' have re-found some other fun things looking for her, but so far she's still on the lam.

This is the song for December 12 on Jon Boden's A Folk Song a Day. Anybody have more information on this song?
