Wayfaring Stranger

traditional / arr: TJH

 

I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger, traveling through this world of woe;
ain’t 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 just going over Jordan; I’m just going over home.

I know dark clouds are all around me; I know my way is rough and steep,
but golden fields lie out before me, where God’s redeemed shall ever sleep.
I’m going there to see my Mother; she said she’d meet me when I come;
I’m just going over Jordan; I’m just going over home.

 

SOLO

I’ll soon be free from every trial, my body sleep in the old boneyard;
I’ll drop that cross of self-denial, and enter into the great beyond.
I’m going there to sing salvation; to sing my sacred evermore;
                                        I’m just going over Jordan; I’m just going over home;                                        
said, I’m just going over Jordan; I’m just going over home.
