The Wayfaring Pilgrim
I am a poor wayfaring stranger, while traveling thro' this world below
There is no sickness, toil, nor danger in that bright world to which I go
I'm going there to meet my father, I'm going there no more to roam
I am going over Jordan, I am just going over home

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 good land
I'm going there to see my mother, she said she'd meet me when I come
I am just going over Jordan, I am just going over home

I'll soon be free from every trial, my body'll rest in the old church yard
I'll drop the cross of self denial, and enter in till my reward
I'm going there to see my Savior, who shed His precious blood for me
I am going over Jordan, I am just going over home
