I heard my mother say

Full Text

1 I heard my mother say,
I heard my mother say,
I heard my mother say,
Give me Jesus.

Refrain:
Give me Jesus. Give me Jesus,
You may have all this world,
Give me Jesus.
Give me Jesus. Give me Jesus,
You may have all this world,
Give me Jesus.

2 Dark midnight was my cry,
Dark midnight was my cry,
Dark midnight was my cry,
Give me Jesus.[Refrain]

3 Oh, when I come to die,
Oh, when I come to die,
Oh, when I come to die,
Give me Jesus. [Refrain]
