Refrain:
Live a-humble, humble
Humble yourselves the bell's done rung,
Live a-humble, humble
Humble yourselves the bell's done rung.
Glory and honor! Praise King Jesus!
Glory and honor! Praise the Lord!
Glory and honor! Praise King Jesus!
Glory and honor! Praise the Lord!
Live a-humble, humble
Humble yourselves the bell's done rung.

1 Watch that sun, how steady he runs,
Don't let him catch you with your work undone. [Refrain]

2 Ever see such a man as God?
He gave up his Son for to come and die,
Gave up his Son for to come and die,
Just to save my soul from a burning fire, [Refrain]

3 See God 'n' you see God 'n' you see God in the morning,
He'll come riding down the line of time;
The fire'll be falling, He'll be calling,
"Come to judgement come." [Refrain]

Folk Songs of the American Negro (No. 1), 1907
