Juré from French Creole Louisiana, likely from the area around Opelousas. Very little of this remains because it was home music, often sung between different households from the front porch and rarely recorded.

The Sacred Harp. A continental era American hymnal.

 

"A life contains a hundred strings, and dies if one be gone.

Strange that a harp of a thousand strings should stay in tune so long."

That Kuwaiti video is viral in the ME right now.

 

The Qu'ran states that the prophet Jesus, not the prophet Muhammad, will be the one to return and preside over the day of judgment. Progressive Christianity is everywhere!

Africa; arr. Paul Hillier.  Haunting melody and striking 18c lyrics.  

Now shall my inward joys arise,
And burst into a Song;
Almighty Love inspires my Heart,
And Pleasure tunes my Tongue.

God on his thirsty Sion-Hill
Some Mercy-Drops has thrown,
And solemn Oaths have bound his Love
To show'r Salvation down.

Why do we then indulge our Fears,
Suspicions and Complaints?
Is he a God, and shall his Grace
Grow weary of his saints?

Can a kind Woman e'er forget
The Infant of her Womb,
And 'mongst a thousand tender Thoughts
Her Suckling have no Room?

Yet, saith the Lord, should Nature change,
And Mothers Monsters prove,
Sion still dwells upon the Heart
Of everlasting Love.

Deep on the Palms of both my Hands
I have engrav'd her Name;
My Hands shal raise her ruin'd Walls,
And build her broken Frame.
