A bluesy arrangement for moderate piano solo. This spiritual dates back to the American Civil War and was sung by former slaves on St. Helena Island along the coast of South Carolina. It’s believed that “Michael” refers to the Archangel Michael, who is viewed by Roman Catholics as a conductor of the souls of the dead. The River Jordan mentioned in the lyrics is where Jesus was baptized, and is a symbol for deliverance and salvation. 3 pages.

Included in the "Piano Remixes: Kid Songs" Vol. 2 intermediate songbook. Difficult piano solo version also available as a medley with “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” titled "Michael Row, Row, Row Your Boat Ashore."
