Text:
Keep your lamps trimmed and a-burnin’,
For this ol’ world is almost gone.

Brothers don’t get weary,
This ol’ world is almost gone.

Sisters don’t stop prayin’,
This ol’ world is almost gone.

Christian your journey soon will be over,
The time is drawing nigh.

Keep your lamps trimmed and a-burnin’,
The time is drawing nigh.

- Traditional African-American Spiritual
