Glory, glory, Hallelujah
When I lay my burden down
Glory, glory, Hallelujah
When I lay my burden down

I was standin' by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rollin'
For to carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
Theres a better home a-waitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

I said to the undertaker
"Undertaker, please drive slow
For this body you are holdin'
Oh, I hate to see here go"

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
Theres a better home a-waitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
Theres a better home a-waitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

I went back home, then my home was lonesome
Since mama, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters cryin'
What a home, home so sad and lone

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
Theres a better home a-waitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Glory, glory, Hallelujah
And I lay my burden down
Glory, glory, Hallelujah
And I lay my burden down
