Wayfaring Stranger

Traditional Negro Spiritual

1 Peter 1:17
"And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth
according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear."

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' home to see my Savior;
Who shed for me His precious blood;
I’m just a-goin' o'er Jordan,
I’m just a-goin' o'er 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.

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' home to see my Savior;
Who shed for me His precious blood;
I’m just a-goin' o'er Jordan,
I’m just a-goin' o'er home.
I’m just a-goin' o'er home.

I'm goin' home.
