Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Harry Thacker Burleigh, (1866-1949)



Chorus:

Swing low, sweet chariot, Coming for to carry me home,

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



Stanza 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.



Chorus:



Stanza 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.



Chorus:



Stanza 3:

The brightest day that ever I saw,

Coming for to carry me home.

When Jesus washed my sins away,

Coming for to carry me home.



Chorus:



Stanza 4:

I’m sometimes up and sometimes down,

Coming for to carry me home,

But still my soul feels heavenly bound,

Coming for to carry me home.



Chorus:
