I Am A Poor Wayfaring Stranger
 
I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While travelling through this world of woe
Yet there's no sickness, toil nor danger
In this bright world to which I go
      
      I'm going there to see my Father
      I'm going there no more to roam
      I am only going over Jordan
      I am only going over home
      
I know dark clouds will gather 'round 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 God's children
      I know they'll meet me when I come
      I am only going over Jordan
      I am only going over home
      
I'll soon be free from every trial
My body sleep beneath the ground
I'll drop the cross of self denial
And enter 0n my great reward
      
      I'm going there to see my savior
      To sing His praise for evermore
      I am only going over Jordan
      I am only going over home
