Traditional Lyrics

Nobody knows de trouble I've seen
Nobody knows but Jesus
Nobody knows de trouble I've seen
Glory Hallelujah!
Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
Oh, yes, Lord
Sometimes I'm almost to de groun'
Oh, yes, Lord
Although you see me goin' 'long so
Oh, yes, Lord
I have my trials here below
Oh, yes, Lord
If you get there before I do
Oh, yes, Lord
Tell all-a my friends I'm coming too
Oh, yes, Lord


The second line ("Nobody knows but Jesus") is changed in some renditions to be "Nobody knows my sorrow"
