I Know Moon-Rise

I know moon-rise, I know star-rise,
Lay this body down. I walk in the moonlight, I walk in the starlight, To lay this body down. I 'll walk in the graveyard, I 'll walk through the graveyard, To lay this body down. I 'll lie in the grave and stretch out my arms ; Lay this body down. I go to the judgment in the evenin' of the day, When I lay this body down ; And my soul and your soul will meet in the day When I lay this body down. --from "Negro Spirituals"
