Glory, Glory (Lyrics)

This song is a Negro spiritual. Alternative titles are: "When I Laid [Lay] My Burden Down," and "I'm Gonna Lay My Burdens Down" (the latter is by Doc Watson). An earlier version was recorded by Odum & Johnson as well as other versions recorded by other artists.

Dave worked with this song for the "Because of Winn-Dixie" soundtrack, but it didn't end up on the final cut of the soundtrack.

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down

Well I feel better, so much better
Since I laid my burden down
I feel better, so much better
Since I laid my burden down

I feel like shouting, Hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
I feel like shouting, Hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down

And I am climbing Jacob's ladder
Since I laid my burden down
Yes, I am climbing Jacob's ladder
Since I laid my burden down

Yes, every round goes higher, higher
Since I laid my burden down
Every round goes higher, higher
Since I laid my burden down

Say Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Since I laid my burden down
