I looked over Jordan and what did I see?
Comin’ for to carry me home
There was a band of angels, a-comin’ after me

Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home

I’m sometimes up, and I’m sometimes down
Comin’ for to carry me home
But but I know my soul is heavenly bound
Comin’ for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
If you get there before I do
Comin’ for to carry me home
Tell all my friends that I’m a-comin’ too

Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin’ for to carry me home
And now they’re comin’ for to carry me home
