Chilly water

"Chilly water" is a gospel that I came across in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 3. I especially like singing the verses which I find quite tongue-twisting as there is a rapid change between fast and slow moving bars. The third verse always makes me grin inwardly, I have often a hard job in not changing the lines.
   "Ol' Satan's jest like a snake in the grass, ......
    He's watching for to bite you as-a you pass. ....
to something more naval!
