Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?
Coming for to carry me home,
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

If you get there before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends I'm coming, too
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

I'm sometimes up I'm sometimes down
Coming for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

The brightest day that I can say
Coming for to carry me home
When Jesus washed my sins away
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

"Swing Low Sweet Chariot" was composed by Wallis Willis, a former slave.
