Keep us de prain', brethern, De power ob Hell aim loose, Ole Satan's cotchin' white folks, an' niggers in his noose. Ef you'se been hookin' chickens De debbel's got a pull, Yo' won't come nigh to glory, Wid feathers in yo' wool. St. Peter's been a'watchin', Yo' capers here and there, Down on yo' knees, pore sinners, An' bust yo're hearts in prayer. I hears dem loud hosannas, I sees dem white robed saint, Salvation's free, my brethern, but this here preachin' aint. Yo' pore old hard shell niggers, Wha' fo' you want to wait? Now, ine in hallelujahs, While Sam Jones pass de plate. - A.C.H.
