The Big Bell In Zion





Come, children, hear the joyful sound,

Ding, Dong, Ding.

Go spread the glad news all around,

Ding, Dong, Ding.



_Chorus_

Oh, the big bell's tollin' up in Zion,

The big bell's tollin' up in Zion,

The big bell's tollin' up in Zion,

Ding, Dong, Ding.



I've been abused and tossed about,

Ding, Dong, Ding.

But glory to the Lamb, I shout!

Ding, Dong, Ding.



My bruthah jus' sent word to me,

Ding, Dong, Ding.

That he'd done set his own self free.

Ding, Dong, Ding.



Ole massa said he could not go,

Ding, Dong, Ding.

But he's done reached Ohio sho'.

Ding, Dong, Ding.



Ise gwine to be real nice an' meek,

Ding, Dong, Ding.

Den I'll run away myself nex' week.

Ding, Dong, Ding.



_Chorus_



Oh, the big bell's tollin' up in Zion,

The big bell's tollin' up in Zion,

The big bell's tollin' up in Zion,

Ding, Dong Ding.
