I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Comin' for to carry me home
A band of angels comin' after me
Comin' for to carry me home.

Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home.

If you get there before I do
Comin' for to carry me home
Tell all of my friends I'm comin' too
Comin' for to carry me home.

Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home.

I remember well my brightest day
Comin' for to carry me home
When Jesus washed my sins away
Comin' for to carry me home.

Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home.

I'm sometimes up and I'm sometimes down
Comin' for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
Comin' for to carry me home.

Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home...
