Song Request: Somebody's Callin' My Name

Share |
Here are more complete lyrics to this traditional African-American spiritual song, as requested by one Cappuccino Soul reader.

Dear Reader,
I hope these lyrics will help in your search for comfort for many years to come.

Hush, Hush, Somebody's Callin' My Name

Hush, hush somebody's calling my name
Hush, hush somebody's calling my name
Hush, hush somebody's calling my name
Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord what shall I do, what shall I do?

Sounds like Jesus, somebody's calling my name
Sounds like Jesus, somebody's calling my name
Sounds like Jesus, somebody's calling my name
Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord what shall I do, what shall I do?

Soon one mornin', death comes a-creepin' in my room
Soon one mornin', death comes a-creepin' in my room
Soon one mornin', death comes a-creepin' in my room
Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord what shall I do, what shall I do?

Hush, hush somebody's calling my name
Hush, hush somebody's calling my name
Hush, hush somebody's calling my name
Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord what shall I do, what shall I do?

And here's a group of men from the St. James Christian Methodist Episcopal Church in Chicago Heights, Illinois, beautifully singing the song.
