featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
This traditional spiritual is set in comfortable 4-part harmony with simple syncopation energizing the rhythm. Originally sung by Jane’s community choir, this song works well inside and outside the church.

LYRICS

Keep your lamp trimmed and burning
the time is drawing nigh.

Sister don’t get weary ‘till your work is done

Brother don’t stop prayin’ ‘till your work is done

Children don’t stop singin’ ‘till your work is done
