The Old Sheep know the Road

O, the old sheep know the road
The old sheep know the road
The young lambs must find
the way

O, sooner in the morning I rise
With crosses and trials on every side
My brother, ain't you got your accounts all sealed?
You'd better go get them before you leave this field

O, shout my sister, for you are free
For Christ has bought your liberty
I really do believe without one doubt
That the Christian has a mighty right to shout

My brother, better mind how to walk on the cross
For your foot might slip and your soul get lost
Better mind that sun and see how she runs
And mind, don't let her catch you with your work undone
