"Live Humble" - Source?

Not the same song as "Livin' Humble" in Parrish, "Slave Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands." (Also collected as "Live Humble" in Dett, "Religious Folk Songs of the Negro," and "Live A Humble," Work, "Folk Songs of the American Negro," and "Songs of Zion.").
Not the same as "Can't You Live Humble," Johnson and Johnson, "The Second Book of Negro Spirituals."

Related to "Humble Yourself, the Bell Done Rung," in "Negro Spirituals, or the Songs of the Jubilee Singers," but that one lacks the Jonah verses. Also in Johnson, "Utica Jubilee Singers."

Not found under these titles in the Cleveland Index.
