Hark, The Voice Of Jesus Calling

Cat. #0923 (MFH #277) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 7, 1969

VERSE 1
Hark, th voice of Jesus calling
Who will come and work today
Fields are white an' th harvest waiting
Who will come an' work today

CHORUS:
You got to walk that lonesome valley
You gott'a go there by yourself
No one here can go there with you
You've got t' go there by yourself

VERSE 2
Mother said, when she was dying
Just before her breath was gone
Darlin boy, put your trust in Jesus
Before I leave this world alone
