A Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Song.
A Song of the Camp Ground.


O wie seelich watt es sei,
Bei den scheenen Engellein.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.

Meinche Mieder freien sich,
Yeesu, wann ich denk an dich.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.

Denke doch an yeenen Daach,
Doo mann eewich leeben maach.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.

Mit den Gleider aanchyetaan,
Die mann net zerreissen kann.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.

Yeesus Grischdus hott’s vollbracht,
Was en Sinder seelich macht.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.

Oh hett ich Fliggel wie Engellein,
Wie bald wett ich im Himmel sein.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.

Wann Gott mich segent, fiehl ich froh,
Siss ya schunt ein Himmel doo.
So seelich, seelich,
Wann der Ha mich hoolet heim.


O how glorious it will be
With the angels fair to see.
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.

My spirit knows such sweet accord
When I think of Thee, dear Lord.
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.

Have you thought of that great day
When in Heav’n we’ll live for aye?
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.

Jesus Christ has washed our sin,
And his joy has entered in.
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.

Celestial robes I there shall wear,
Which shall never, never tear.
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.

Had I angel wings to fly,
I’d soar into the heav’nly sky.
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.

When God’s grace toward me doth flow,
I feel Heav’n is here below!
So glorious, glorious,
When the Master calls me home.
