Poor Wayfaring Stranger


music
I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
Traveling through this world below;
There is no sickness, no toil, nor danger
In that bright land to which I go.

I'm going there to meet my father,
I'm going there no more to roam;
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.

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 know dark clouds will gather over me,
I know my pathway's rough and steep;

But golden fields lie out before me,
Where weary eyes no more shall weep.

I'm going there to meet my Saviour,
He said He'd meet me when I come
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.

I'm going there to meet my Saviour,
Who shed for me His precious blood;

I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.

I'll soon be free from every trial,
This form shall rest beneath the sod;
I'll drop the cross of self-denial
And enter in my home with God.

I want to sing salvation's story
In concert with the blood-washed band;

I want to wear a crown of glory,
When I get home to that bright land.

I'm going there to meet my Saviour,
He said He'd meet me when I come
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.




Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. Ephesians 5:19
