Eva Cassidy - Wayfaring Stranger Lyrics




[Verse 1]
I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
While journeying through,
This world of woe,
Yeah, and there's no sickness,
toil nor danger,
In that bright land,
To which i go.

[Chorus]
I'm going there to see my Father,
I'm going there,
No more to roam,
I'm only go,
Going over jordan,
I'm only go,
Going over home.

[Verse 2]
I know dark clouds,
Will gather on me,
I know my way,
My way is rough and steep,
Yeah, and beautiful fields,
Lie just before me,
And God's redeemed
Their vigils keep.

[Chorus]
I'm going there to see my Father,
I'm going there,
No more to roam,
I'm only go,
Going over jordan,
I'm only go,
Going over home.

I'm going there to see my Mother,
I'm going there,
No more to roam,
I'm only go,
Going over jordan,
I'm only go,
Going over home.

[Verse 3]
I want to wear,
That crown of glory,
When I get home,
To that good land,
Well, I want to shout,
Salvation's story,
In concert with,
All the blood-washed band.

[Chorus]
I'm going there to see my Saviour,
I'm going there,
No more to roam,
I'm only go,
Going over jordan,
I'm only go,
Going over home,
Well, I'm only go,
Going over home,
Yeah, only....[repeat till fade]

Eva Cassidy Wayfaring Stranger Comments
  1. Ted A. McElroy

    This gal and this song gives me chills. A must listen!

  2. Polish issues

    If I had a voice like this I would be a billionaire already 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻😜😜😍

  3. Trevor Morris

    It was more than half a minute before I realised that I was enjoying that jazzy, bluesy feel that is so different from the usual treatment, yet Eva still manages to capture the emotion of it. it is a great version.

  4. Alana C

    Don’t get me wrong I like jazz but this is one song that just shouldn’t have a jazz cover

  5. Stephanie Knows

    This is one of my favorite albums. Her interpretation of even traditional songs seems so personal and from such a deep place it's hard to believe she didn't write them all.

  6. Sandra Mathis

    I've always heard this song, slow and sober. When the music started, I thought, "I think I've come to one of Eva's songs that I don't like." Boy was I ever wrong!!! This woman could sing your grocery list and make it beautiful. I guess she's that wayfaring stranger. She's gone home, no more to roam. A gain for heaven, but such a loss for us.

  7. David Cohen

    Dit liedje is zo, zo prachtig. Hulde ook aan de groep die Eva Cassidy begeleidde!

  8. Elaine Marie

    The best version of this song ever. So miss her.

  9. sidney pasquarelli

    Jazzy! She could do almost everything! Amazing!

  10. Devorah Tucker-Fick

    The world lost a wonderful voice and soul when she died so young. She was so talented.

  11. Melon boi

    Am I the only one here for hwk

  12. DL Ray

    I am a poor wayfaring stranger
    While journeying through this world of woe
    Yet 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 dark clouds will gather over me
    I know my way is rough and steep
    Yet beautiful fields lie just before me
    And God's redeemed their vigils keep

    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'm going there to see my mother
    I'm going there no more to roam
    I'm only going over Jordan
    I'm only going over home

    I want to wear that crown of glory
    When I get home to that good land
    Well I want to shout salvation's story
    In concert with the blood-washed band

    I'm going there to see my Savior
    Oh I'm going there no more to roam
    I'm only going over Jordan
    I'm only going over home

    Well I'm only going over home
    Yeah only going over home
    I'm only going over home

  13. D Ray

    She is so awesome. I wish I could sing half as good as this. RIP beautiful lady, gone far too soon.

  18. Glenn Cheshire

    Don't mention the bad comments there in a bad place where they live in a weird place.

  19. MoonCocoon

    Wonderful song, wonderfully sung by the great Eva Cassidy. There is no salvation without our redeemer Jesus Christ. He is the way the truth and the life.

    Christopher Smith

    technologywontsaveus Jesus wont save you because he is not real, science is, end of!

    Richard Hanbury

    Christopher Smith I assure you he is real

  20. mel cooper

    I can not begin to express how much this song means to me. I love you Eva!

  21. Paul Pham

    To live is Christ to die is gain. It's a win win situation. Live for His glory and will be proud to die for His everlasting love for me. Thank You Jesus!

  22. Mark Ash-Petta
