The Hebrew Children

Traditional Southern Folk Hymn

Where now are the Hebrew children?
Where now are the Hebrew children?
Where now are the Hebrew children?
Safe in the promised land.

O where is weeping Mary?
O where is weeping Mary?
O where is weeping Mary?
'Rived in the goodly land.

She is dead and gone to Heaven,
She is dead and gone to Heaven,
She is dead and gone to Heaven.
'Rived in the goodly land.

O where are Paul and Silas?
O where are Paul and Silas?
O where are Paul and Silas?
Gone to the goodly land.

They are dead and gone to Heaven,
They are dead and gone to Heaven,
They are dead and gone to Heaven,
'Rived in the goodly land.
