[Verse I]

       Dm                                   
I am a poor wayfaring stranger, 
              Gm                    Dm
By travelling through this world of woe.
               Dm       
Yet there's no sickness, toil nor danger 
               Gm A             Dm
In that bright world to which I go.


[Chorus]

F          A#              Dm         
I'm going there to see my Father,
           A#              Dm
I'm going there no more to roam!
         F             Dm
I'm only going over Jordan,
         C          Dm    
I'm only going over home.


[Verse II]

            Dm                   
I know dark clouds will gather 'round me,
          Gm               Dm
I know my way is rough and steep
            Dm
But golden fields lie out before me,
              Gm C             Dm
Where gods redeemed shall ever sleep.


[Chorus]

F          A#              Dm
I'm going there to see my mother,
               A#              Dm
She said she'd meet me when I come 
         F             Dm
I'm only going over Jordan,
         C          Dm    
I'm only going over home.


[Instrumental]

A# Dm A# Dm
F A# Dm
C Dm


[Verse III]

             Dm 
I'll soon be free from ev'ry trial,
        Gm               Dm
My body sleeps in the churchyard
              Dm
I'll drop the cross of self-denial 
          Gm C            Dm
And enter on my great reward.


[Chorus]

F          A#              Dm
I'm going there to see my Savior,
            A#              Dm
To sing his praise for evermore, 
         F             Dm
I'm only going over Jordan,
         C          Dm    
I'm only going over home.
