LISTEN: Rock a My Soul In the Bosom of Abraham

Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Oh, rock-a my soul!

Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Oh, rock-a my soul!

If you get there before I do,
Just tell my friends I'm a comin' too.
Oh rock-a my soul.

Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Oh, rock-a my soul!

When I went down to the villiage to pray,
I felt so happy that I stayed all day
Oh, Rock-a my soul!

Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Oh, rock-a my soul!

If the lord takes me on judgment day,
He'll say I'm a sinner but you can stay.

Oh, Rock-a my soul!

Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham,
Oh, rock-a my soul!

Rock-a my soul, Rock-a my soul, Rock-a my soul...
In the bosom of Abraham.

A Traditional Old-time Spiritual based on  Luke 16:19-31
