Note that the book from which this song was taken is currently out of print.
Come, fathers and mothers, Come, sisters and brothers,
Come, join us to sing praise to Jesus;
O, fathers, don't you feel determined, To meet within the walls of Zion.
We'll shout and go round, We'll shout and go round,
We'll shout and go round the walls of Zion.
(The words have been briefly abridged to match the notes)
This is the song that noted composer Aaron Copland arranged in his second set of Old American Songs. He also used its melody for the song "The Promise of Living" in his opera The Tender Land.
