I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While journeying 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 father
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 way my way is rough and steep
Yet beautiful fields lie just before me
And God's redeemed their vigils keep
