Poor Wayfaring Stranger

Oooo, I'm poor, I'm blind, I'm weak
Oooo, I'm poor, I'm blind, I'm weak
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
While wandering through this world of woe
But there's no sickness (there's no sickness), toil or danger (no danger)
In that fair land to which I go

Chorus 1:
I'm goin' there to meet my mother (I'm goin home)
I'm goin' there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm just going, going over home

[Verse 1 background is laid underneath:]
I know dark clouds will gather round me
I know my way is rough and steep
But golden fields lie out before me
Where God's redeemed shall never weep

You know I'm gonna leave this land
With its cold and heartless ways
You know I'm gonna leave this land
One of these good ole days

Chorus 2:
I'm goin' there (I'll be goin) to meet my brothers
(Yes, I am) Going there (I'm going) no more to roam
I'm only goin' over Jordan
I'm only goin'...
Said I'm only going, oh, yeah, to meet my Savior oh, yeah
I'm going to sing His praises
I'm only goin' over Jordan
I'm only goin' over home
I'm goin' home

Going home, sweet home, my home
I am going home, sweet home, my home

I'm poor, I'm blind, I'm weak
[Repeat and fade]

To meet a traitor�s doom at morn.
The tide of lying tongues I stemmed,
And honored him �mid shame and scorn.
My friendship�s utmost zeal to try,
He asked if I for him would die.
The flesh was weak; my blood ran chill,
But my free spirit cried, �I will!�

Then in a moment to my view
The stranger started from disguise.
The tokens in His hands I knew;
The Savior stood before mine eyes.
He spake, and my poor name He named,
�Of Me thou hast not been ashamed.
These deeds shall thy memorial be;
Fear not, thou didst them unto Me.�
