Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (USA)



Refrain:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.
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)

Sometimes I'm up, and sometimes I'm down,
Coming for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound.
Coming for to carry me home. (Refrain)

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)

If I get there before you do,
Coming for to carry me home
I'll cut a hole and pull you through.
Coming for to carry me home. (Refrain)

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)
