How well do you know your old fashioned Hymnals? Name that hymn:
1) We should never be discouraged- Take it to the Lord in prayer.
2) When the darkness appears and the night draws near, and the day is past and gone…..
3) From the waters lifted me- Now safe am I.
4) Jesus loves me! Loves me still, Tho’ I’m very weak and ill.
5) Work thru the morning hours; Work while the dew is sparkling, work mid springing flow’rs.
6) And then one day I’ll cross the river; I’ll fight life’s final war with pain.
7) Purer are the joys up yonder than the halls of mirth, grander are the songs eternal than the songs of earth.
8) Through this world of toils and snares, If I falter Lord who cares.
** Biblical Note*** American Negro Spirituals are folk songs created by enslaved Africans after their arrival in North America between 1619 and 1860. The songs created and sung by enslaved women, men and children were born in North America and recant with dignity, resolve and sometimes joy, their stories of life, death, faith, hope, escape and survival. “National Association Of Teachers of Singing”.
