Title Oh Stop and Tell Me Redman
Description OH STOP AHD TELL ME BEDH&N Oh stop and tell me Bedman Who are you, why you roam And how you get your living Have you no God, no home? Hid stature straight and portly And decked in native pride, Mid feathers, paint, and brooches He willingly replied, "I once vas pleasant Ephraim, Who Jacob for me prayed But, oh, how blessings vanished When man from God had strayed. Before your nation knew us? Some thousand moons ago. Our fathers fell in darkness And wandered to and fro. And since have lived by hunting Instead of work and arts Until our race has dwindled To idle Indian hearts. Yet hope within us lingers As if the spirit spoke He'll eoae for your redemption And break your gentile yokes. And all our captive brothers ftroan every clime will come And quit their savage customs To live with God at home. And joy will fill our bosoms And blessings crown our days We'll live in pure religion And sing our Maker's praise." Submitted by Jeannie Sl&ugh, Spring City, Utah. -93-
