I am a orphan
On God's highway
But I'll share my troubles
If you go my way

I have no mother
No father
No sister
No brother
I am an orphan girl

I have had friendships
Pure and golden
But the ties of kinship
I have not known them

I know no mother
No father
No sister
No brother
I am an orphan girl

But when he calls me
I will be Able
To meet my family
At God's table

I'll meet my mother
My father
My sister
Oh my brother
No more an orphan girl

Blessed savior
Make me willing
And walk beside me
Until I'm with them

Be my mother
My father
My sister
Oh my brother
I am an orphan girl
I am an orphan girl
