470. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Refrain:
Swing low, sweet chariot,
coming for to carry me home;
swing low, sweet chariot,
coming for to carry me home.

1 I looked over Jordan, and what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home?
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home. [Refrain]

2 If you get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home;
Tell all my friends I’m coming too,
Coming for to carry me home. [Refrain]

3 I’m sometimes up, I'm sometimes down,
Coming for to carry me home:
But still my soul feels heavenly bound,
Coming for to carry me home. [Refrain]

4 The brightest day that I can say,
Coming for to carry me home;
When Jesus washed my sins away,
Coming for to carry me home. [Refrain]
