A song used at the close of the sermon and the opening of the church door.

"Geechee," or "Gullah," refers to a group of African Americans who settled on the sea islands of South Carolina and Georgia. Their geographic isolation enabled them to preserve more of their West African heritage, including some elements of the language. Language used: Geechee.
