Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

by Wallis Willis

Chorus:

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot;
Comin' for to carry me home.

Verse 1:

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see,
Comin' for to carry me home,
A band of angels comin' after me,
Comin' for to carry me home.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2:

If you get there before I do,
Comin' for to carry me home,
Tell all my friends I'm comin' too,
Comin' for to carry me home.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:

I'm sometimes up and sometimes down,
Comin' for to carry me home,
But still my soul feels heavenly bound,
Comin' for to carry me home.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4:

The brightest day that I can say,
Comin' for to carry me home,
When Jesus washed my sins away,
Comin' for to carry me home.

Repeat Chorus
