Kumbaya (My Lord) Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Kumbaya” is a spiritual song. In Gullan -a language that was spoken by slaves in South Carolina and Georgia- it means “Come by Yuh” or “Come by Here”, and refers to the help of God.

The song is known from the 20’s and during the decades of the 50’s and the 60’s it became popular in scouting and summer camps. Since Joan Baez’s recording in 1962, the song was associated with the Civil Rights Movement, but it is also sung during the Christmas period as a religious song.
