Little blackbird on the gable/Blackbird callin’ ‘bout trouble and woe/Trouble and woe, trouble and woe/Fill the cracks in the wall and fill up our store//

There’s a spirit at my table/Spirit aglow when it spoke unto Moses/Spirit aglow, spirit aglow/But the fire burns cold and we’ve no place to go//

Pretty Sarah, sweet and able//Won’t you come down and tell us, now, where do we go?/Where do we go, where do we go/When the cup runneth low and the river is froze?//

Little Bessie in her stable/The baby’s a cryin’ and the cold wind’s a blowin’/Cold wind’s a blowin’, cold wind’s a blowin’/Put a line in the snow and we’ll find our way home//

Little blackbird on the gable/Little blackbird, don’t you call here no more/Don’t you call here no more, call here no more/

Don’t you know, it is well it is well with my soul/It is well, it is well with my soul/It is well it is well with my soul//
