Mary Don’t You Weep” is a Christian music that takes back its origin way before the American Civil War. Many scholars, therefore, call it a “slave song“. In addition, this gospel song describes their “origins among the enslaved“, and also contains “coded messages of hope and resistance“. Hence, it became one of the most important tunes of the Negro spirituals.

In context, “Mary Don’t You Weep” was inspired by an account in the new testament of the Bible. It narrates the Biblical story of Mary of Bethany and her fraught request to Jesus Christ. She wants Jesus to raise her brother Lazarus from the dead and make him well again. Furthermore, the song relates to some of the narratives revealed in the old testament, in The Exodus, and the Passage of the Red Sea. It also tells the story when God promised Noah that He will no longer submerge the earth in water. God then used the rainbow as a sign of promise and a covenant to Noah and his family. With the diverse themes and powerful messages, it contains, “Mary Don’t You Weep” became popular once again during the Civil Rights Movement.

Moreover, the title of the song is alternately called “O Mary Don’t You Weep“, “Oh Mary, Don’t You Weep, Don’t You Mourn“, or variations thereof.
