Connie Smith – The Wayfarin' Pilgrim lyrics

I am a poor wayfaring pilgrim traveling through this world below
There is no sickness or no danger in that bright world to which I go
I'm going there to meet my father I'm going there no more to roam
I'm just going over Jordan I'm just going over home
[ ac. Guitar ]
I know dark clouds will gather o'er me I know my pathway is rough and steep
But golden fields lie out before me where weary eyes no more shall weep
I'm going there to see my Saviour who she'd for me his precious blood
I'm just going over Jordan I'm just going over home (over home over home)

    When we are born into this world we bring nothing with us and when we leave, we take nothing with us. We endure many things while we are here but if we are faithful and true, there is a perfect place of peace and rest. A place that we can really call home when this journey is finished and there will be no more worry and fear because we are with god, the supreme ruler of all.
