Kate Campbell – Delmus Jackson lyrics

Delmus Jackson was a black man
Delmus Jackson was a custodian
He cleaned the church house
Five days a week
Delmus Jackson talked to me

He'd say
I'm working for the Lord
Gonna see his face
For my reward
And on that day he will say
Well-done Delmus Jackson

Delmus Jackson had nine children
Delmus Jackson had great wisdom
Do unto others as if they was you
Delmus Jackson spoke the truth

He'd say Jesus
Loves all his children
And he will welcome everyone
And on that day he will say
Well-done Delmus Jackson

Delmus Jackson bought me Cokes
Delmus Jackson told me jokes
He drank his coffee
From a thermos
Delmus Jackson made no fuss

He'd say my bags are packed
And I'm ready to go
To meet the Lord
On streets of gold
And on that day he will say
Well-done Delmus Jackson
