After one of Tim's kickass shape note workshops, we were lucky enough to jam for a bit at Berkeley's Freight and Salvage.

Lay up nearer, brother, nearer,
For my limbs are growing cold.
And thy presence seemeth nearer
When thine arms around me fold.
I am dying, brother, dying
Soon you'll miss me in your berth;
For my form will soon be lying
'Neath the ocean's briny surf.
I am dying, brother, dying;
Soon you'll miss me in your berth,
For my form will soon be lying
'Neath the ocean's briny surf.

I am going, brother, going,
But my hope in God is strong.
I am willing, brother, knowing
That He doeth nothing wrong.

Hark, I hear the Savior speaking.
'Tis, I know His Voice so well.
When I'm gone, no, don't be weeping.
Brother, hear my last farewell.
