Poor Wayfaring Stranger

from by Oakes & Smith



I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While journeying through
This world of woe
And there's no sickness, toil, nor danger
In that bright land 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 that dark clouds
Will gather 'round me
I know my way is rough and steep
And the beautiful fields lie just before me
Where God's redeemed there vigils keep
