King Jesus lit de candle by de waterside.
To see de little chil’en when dey truly baptize.
Honor, honor unto de Dyin’ Lamb

Oh, run along chil’en an’ be baptize,
Mighty pretty meetin’ by de waterside.
Honor, honor unto de Dyin’ Lamb

I prayed all day, I prayed all night,
My head got sprinkled with de midnight dew.
Honor, honor unto de Dyin’ Lamb
