MERRIE AMSTERBURG WAYFARING STRANGER LYRICS

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this world of woe
There is no sickness, toil, or danger
In that bright land to which I go

I'm going home to see my father
I'm going back, no more to roam

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

I know dark clouds will gather 'round me
I know my way is rough and steep
But beauteous fields lie just before me
Where men's redeemed their vigils keep

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'm going home to see my father
I'm going back, no more to roam

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