​Been Listening All the Day

This song is by Blind Joe Taggart and appears on the album Blind Joe Taggart Vol. 1 (1926-1928) (1993).

Dark was the night and cold the ground
On which my Lord was laid
His sweat like drops of blood ran down
In agony he prayed

Been a-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
A-listening all the night long
To hear some sinner pray

Been a-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
A-listening all the night long
Hear some sinner pray

Father, remove this bitter cup
If that's Thy sacred will
If not, content to drink it up
Pleasures I fulfill

Been a-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all night long
Hear some sinner pray

A-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all the night long
Hear some sinner pray

Now, some say John, he's a Baptist
Oh, he's nothing but a Jew
But the Holy Bible tell us
John was a preacher too

Been a-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all the night long
Hear some sinner pray

A-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all the night long
Hear some sinner pray

Now, a Man, he came from Heaven
Oh, and camped upon the ground
And whence He sound the trumpet
Holy love come down

Been a-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all the night long
Hear some sinner pray

A-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all the night long
To hear some sinner pray

Been a-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Been a-listening all the night long
To hear some sinner pray

A-listening all the night long
Oh, listening all the day
Was a-listening all the night long
Hear some sinner pray
