"Wayfaring Stranger" as written by and Steve/griffith Tyrell....
I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
While traveling through this world of woe.
Yet there's no sickness, toil nor danger
In the bright world to which I go.

I'm going there to see my father,
I'm going there no more to run
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I know dark clouds will gather round me;
I know my way is rough and steep.
But golden fields lie out before me
Where God's redeem shall ever sleep.

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'll soon be free from every trial,
My body sleep in the churchyard;
I'll drop the cross of self denial
And enter on my great reward.

I'm going there to see me Savior,
To sing his praise forevermore
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home
