I'm just a poor wayfaring strangerTraveling through this world belowThere is no sickness, no toil or dangerIn that bright land to which I goI'm going there to see my fatherAnd all my loved ones, who've gone onI'm just going over JordanI'm just going over homeI know dark clouds will gather 'round meI know my way is hard and steepBut beauteous fields arise before meWhere God's redeemed their vigils keepI'm going there to see my motherShe said she'd meet me when I comeSo I'm just going over JordanI'm just going over homeI'm just going over JordanI'm just going over home
My condolences to the family.. We love yâ€™all
