During the social protest movements of the 1950s and 1960s "All My Trials" became a popular folk song . It is based on a Bahamian lullaby about a mother on her death bed, comforting her children, "Hush little baby, don't you cry. You know your mama's bound to die," because, as she explains, "All my trials, Lord, Soon be over."

The underlying message - this too shall pass; that no matter how bleak the situation seemed, the struggle would "soon be over" - lifted this song to the status of an anthem and was recorded by many of the leading artists of the era. The song is usually classified as a spritual because of its biblical references and religious imagery.

Spadecaller's music video presents this classic folk tune with visuals that reference the events of Katrina, Darfur, and Iraq.

(LYRICS)

Hush little baby, don't you cry
You know your mama was born to die
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

The river of Jordan is muddy and cold
Well it chills the body but not the soul
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

I've got a little book with pages three
And every page spells liberty
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

Too late, my brothers
Too late, but never mind
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

If living were a thing that money could buy
Then the rich would live and the poor would die
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

There grows a tree in Paradise
And the pilgrims call it the Tree of Life
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

Too late, my brothers
Too late, but never mind
All my trials, Lord, soon be over
All my trials, Lord, soon be over
