8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger, Traveling through this world of woe.
There is no sickness, no 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 dark clouds will gather round me, I know my way is rough and steep.
But beau-teous fields lie just before me, Where God's redeemed their vigils keep.
I'm going home 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.
