Wayfaring Stranger Lyrics

I am a poor wayfarin' stranger
Travellin' through this world alone
There is no sickness, toil nor danger
In that fair land to which I go

I'm goin' home to see my mother
I'm goin' home no more to roam
I am just goin' over Jordan
I am just goin' over home

I know dark clouds will hover o'er me
I know my pathway is rough and steep
But golden fields lie out before me
Where weary eyes no more will weep

I'm goin' home to see my father
I'm goin' home no more to roam
I am just goin' over Jordan
I am just goin' over home

I'll soon be free from every trial
This form shall rest beneath the Sun
I'll drop the cross of self-denial
An' enter in that home with God

I'm goin' home to see my savior
I'm goin' home no more to roam
I am just goin' over Jordan
I am just goin' over home
