From the recording Wayfairing Stranger

Lyrics

 
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
I'm traveling through this world of woe
Yet there's no sickness, toil nor danger
In that bright land to which I go

I'm going there to see my mother
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I want to wear a crown of glory
When I get home to that good land
I want to shout salvation's story
In concert with the blood-washed band

I'm going there to see my father
He said he'd meet me when I come
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

-Instrumental Break-

I'm going there to meet my Saviour
To sing his praise forever more
I'm only a going over Jordan
I'm only a going over home

I'm only going over home

I'm only going over home
I'm just a poor wayfaring strangerI'm traveling through this world of woeYet there's no sickness, toil nor dangerIn that bright land to which I go
I'm going there to see my motherI'm going there no more to roamI'm only going over JordanI'm only going over homeI want to wear a crown of gloryWhen I get home to that good landI want to shout salvation's storyIn concert with the blood-washed band
I'm going there to see my fatherHe said he'd meet me when I comeI'm only going over JordanI'm only going over home-Instrumental Break-I'm going there to meet my SaviourTo sing his praise forever moreI'm only a going over JordanI'm only a going over homeI'm only going over homeI'm only going over home
