Click to listen to the music of Wayfaring Stranger and sing along!

I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
A travel'n through this world of woe
But there's no sickness, no toil nor danger
In that bright world to which I go.

Refrain:

I'm goin' there to see my father
I'm goin' there no more to roam;
I'm just a-goin' over Jordan
I'm just a-goin' over home.

I know dark clouds will gather 'round me
I know my way is rough and steep;
But golden fields lay just before me
Where God's redeemed no more shall weep.

Refrain:

I'm goin' there to see my mother
I'm goin' there no more to roam;
I'm just a-goin' over Jordan
I'm just a-goin' 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.

Refrain:

I'm goin' there to see my Savior
I'm goin' there no more to roam;
I'm just a-goin' over Jordan
I'm just a-goin' over home.

I'm goin' home.
