"" I'M ONLY GOING OVER HOME ""

 
The words written to a song called " The Poor Wayfaring Stranger " were written by an unknown author. May they touch you as they have me and for others for several generations.

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
while traveling through this world of woe

There is no sickness toil or danger
in that bright world to which I go.

I'm going there to see my Father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I know dark clouds will gather around me
I know my way is rough and steep

Yet butious fields lay just before me
while God's redeemed their vigils keep

I'm going there to see my Father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I'm going there to see my mother
she said she'd meet me when I come
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home.

I'm going there to see my Father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over HOME.

See you there!
