Wayfaring StrangerBearbeiten

I am a[Am]poor way-[E7]faring[Am]stranger
While travelling[Dm]through this world of[E7]woe
There's no[Am]sick-[E7]ness no toil or[Am]danger
In that bright[Dm]wo-[E7]rld to which I[Am]go
I'm going[F]there[G]to meet my[C]father
I'm going[F]there[G]no more to[C]ro-[E7]am
I’m only[Am]go-[E7]ing over[Am]Jordan
I’m only[Dm]go-[E7]ing over[Am]home[(E7)]


I know dark[Am]clouds will[E7]gather a-[Am]round me
I know my[Dm]path is rough and[E7]steep
But golden[Am]fields lie[E7]there be-[Am]fore me
Where weary[Dm]eyes no[E7]more shall[Am]weep
I'm going[F]there[G]to see my[C]mother
She said she'd[F]meet me[G]when I[C]come[(E7)]
I’m only[Am]go-[E7]ing over[Am]Jordan
I’m only[Dm]go-[E7]ing over[Am]home[(E7)]


I'll soon be[Am]free from[E7]every[Am]trial
This form will[Dm]rest beneath the[E7]sod
I'll drop the[Am]cross of[E7]self de-[Am]nial,
And enter[Dm]in my[E7]home with[Am]God.
I'm going[F]there to[G]see my[C]Saviour
Who shed for[F]me His[G]precious[C]blood[E7]
I’m only[Am]go-[E7]ing over[Am]Jordan
I’m only[Dm]go-[E7]ing over[Am]home[(E7)]


I'm going to[Am]wear the[E7]crown of[Am]glory
When I get[Dm]home to that bright[E7]land
I'm going to[Am]shout salvation's[Am]story
In concert[Dm]with that[E7]bloodwashed[Am]band
I'm going[F]there[G]to meet my[C]Saviour
To sing His[F]praises[G]for ever[C]more[E7]
I’m only[Am]go-[E7]ing over[Am]Jordan
I’m only[Dm]go-[E7]ing over[Am]home[(E7)]
