​Rock Me

This song is by Sister Rosetta Tharpe and appears on the compilation album The Original Soul Sister (2002) and on the compilation album The Gospel Of The Blues (2003).

Now won't you hear me singin'
Hear the words that I'm saying
Wash my soul with water from on high
Why the world loves love is around me
Even forced to buy me
But oh, if you leave me
I will die
You hold me in the bosom
Till the storms of life is over
Rock me in the cradle of our love
Only feed me till I want no more
Then you take me to your blessed home above

Make me journey
You make my burning brighter
Help me to do good wherever I can
Oh, let thou praise and thrill me
Thou loving kindness fill me
Then you hold me
Hold me in the hollow of the hand
You hold me in the bosom
Till storms of life is over
Rock me in the cradle of our love
Only feed
Then you'll take me to your blessed home above
