Canton Spirituals – Tell Me How Long Lyrics

TELL ME HOW LONG Will It Be

Before the children, before they shall be free

Lord I’m tired of being lied on

Tired of being ‘buked and scorned, how long

Will it be

Sometimes I’m up and then again I’m down

Sometimes I’m almost level to the ground

Lord I’m tired of being lied on

Tired of being ‘buked and scorned, how long Will it be

Sometimes my burdens may seem hard to bear

But I know Jesus is always standing there

Sometimes my days may seem dark as night

But I know Jesus will make everything alright

Walk on, walk on, walk on, yeah

You shall be free, You shall be free, You shall be free
