Wayfaring Stranger Lyrics

(Traditional - Arr. Brian Ahern)

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While traveling through this world of woe
Yet there's no sickness, toil or danger
in that bright world to which I go.

I'm going there to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only goin' over Jordan
I'm only goin' over home.

--- Instrumental ---

I know dark clouds were headin' around me
I know my way is tough and steep
Yet beautious fields lie just before me
Where God's redeemed their vigils keep.

I'm going there to see my mother
She said she'd meet me when I come
I'm only goin' over Jordan
I'm only goin' over home...
