“Poor Wayfaring Stranger”

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Travelling through this world alone
But there is no sickness, toil or 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 just going over Jordan
I’m just 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 weary eyes no more will weep

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'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 that home with God

I'm going there to  meet my savior
Dwell with Him and never roam;
I’m just going over Jordan
I’m just going over home
