Rocka my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Rocka my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Rocka my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Oh rocka my soul. So high can't get over it

So low can't get under it So wide can't get around it
Oh rocka my soul.
Rocka my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Rocka my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Rocka my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Oh rocka my soul.

NOW THE DAY IS OVER
Now the day is over
Night is drawing nigh
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.
When he morning wakens
Then may I arise
Pure and clean and wholesome
In thy holy eyes.

I KNOW

I know where the grass is green
I know where the sky is blue
I know where the flowers bend
At the early morning dew.

I think of the pine trees tall
The majesty of far off heights
I think of silver mist
And the long, long summer nights.

Oh forest of my desire In memory you live for me
You shine like a beacon fire
For all God meant to be.
Oh forest of my desire

In memory you live for me
You shine like a beacon fire
For all God meant to be.

JACOB'S LADDER

We are climbing Jacob's ladder
We are climbing Jacob's ladder
We are climbing Jacob's ladder
Children of the Lord.

Every rung goes higher, higher
Every rung goes higher, higher
Every rung goes higher, higher
Children of the Lord.

If you love Him, why not serve Him
If you love Him, why not serve Him
If you love Him, why not serve Him
Children of the Lord.

Rise, shine, give God glory
Rise, shine, give God glory
Rise, shine, give God glory
Children of the Lord.

We are climbing Jacob's ladder
We are climbing Jacob's ladder
We are climbing Jacob's ladder
Children of the Lord.

SWING LOW

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
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home.
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.
