I stood on de ribber ob Jerdon,
To see dat ship come sailin’ ober,
Stood on de ribber ob Jerdon,
To see dat ship sail by.

Oh, mo’ner doan yo’ weep!
W’en yo’ see dat ship come sailin’ ober,
Oh, mo’ner doan yo’ weep!
W’en yo’ see dat ship sail by.

O sister yo’ bettah be ready,
To see dat ship come sailin’ ober,
Sister yo’ bettah be ready,
To see dat ship sail by.

Oh, mo’ner doan yo’ weep!
W’en yo’ see dat ship come sailin’ ober,
Shout Glory Hallelujah!
W’en yo’ see dat ship sail by.

I stood on de ribber ob Jerdon!
