634. Oh, Freedom

1 Oh, freedom, oh, freedom,
oh, freedom over me.
And before I'd be a slave
I'll be buried in my grave,
and go home to my Lord and be free.

2 No more moaning, no more moaning,
no more moaning over me.
And before I'd be a slave
I'll be buried in my grave,
and go home to my Lord and be free.

3 There’ll be singing, there’ll be singing,
there’ll be singing over me.
And before I'd be a slave
I'll be buried in my grave,
and go home to my Lord and be free.
