No Depression in Heaven.

For fear the hearts of men are failing,
For these are latter days we know
The Great Depression now is spreading,
God's word declared it would be so

I'm going where there's no depression,
To the lovely land that's free from care
I'll leave this world of toil and trouble,
My home's in Heaven, I'm going there

In that bright land, there'll be no hunger,
No orphan children crying for bread,
No weeping widows, toil or struggle,
No shrouds, no coffins, and no death

This dark hour of midnight nearing
And tribulation time will come
The storms will hurl in midnight fear
And sweep lost millions to their doom

This is the counterpiece to another song I posted about a week back by Blind Alfred Reed.No Depression in Heaven" The Original Carter Family subsequently also recorded the first two verses of Reed's song with one additional verse not to be found in Reed's version. Have a listen. Enjoy. kisses. m.
