Spirituals (黒人霊歌)

 

① Go Down Moses

 

When Israel was in Egypt's land
Let my people go
Oppress'd so hard they could not stand
Let my People go

Go down, Moses
Way down in Egypt's land
Tell old Pharaoh
Let my people go

 

② Steal Away To Jesus

 

Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus
Steal away, steal away home
I ain't got long to stay here

My Lord, He calls me
He calls me by the thunder
The trumpet sounds within-a my soul
I ain't got long to stay here

Green trees are bending
Po' sinner stand a-trembling
The trumpet sounds within-a my soul
I ain't got long to stay here

 

③ Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

 

 

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?
(Coming for to carry me home)
I saw a band of angels coming after me
(Coming for to carry me home)

 

If you get back to heaven before I do
(Coming for to carry me home)
You'll tell all my friends, I'll be coming there too
(Coming for to carry me home)

 

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace!(how sweet the sound)
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost but now I am found
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear.
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares.
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.
