Wayfaring Stranger – Lyrics and Chords

 b                                     G
 I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger
                      a                                   b
 I’m traveling through this world of woe 
b                                                G
 Yet there’s no sickness, toil nor danger
                       a                        b 
 In that bright land to which I go.


         G                            D
 I’m going there to see my brother
             G                             f#
 I’m going there no more to roam
        b                       G
 I’m just a-going over Jordan
        a                      b 
 I’m just a-going over home.
 
 
 b                                       G
 I know dark clouds will gather ‘round me
               a                              b
 I know my way is rough and steep
  b                            G
 Yet golden fields lie just before me
            a                                    b
 Where the redeemed shall ever sleep.
 

   G                          D
 I’m going there to see my loved ones
            G                             f#
 Gone on before me, one by one
          b                     G
 I’m only going over Jordan
          a                    b
 I’m only going over home.
 

  b                                      G
 I want to wear a crown of glory
            a                             b
 When I get home to that good land
  b                                      G
 I want to shout salvation’s story
         a                                       b
 In concert with the blood-washed band.
 

         G                              D
 I’m going there to meet my Saviour
                 G                          f#
 To sing His praise forever more
         b                     G
 I’m just a-going over Jordan
        a                    b
 I’m just a-going over home.
