Comin' for to carry me home
There was a band of angels a comin' after me
Comin' for to carry me home

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

Well, I'm sometimes up and I'm sometimes down
Comin' for to carry me home

Comin' for to carry me home

Well, now if you get there before I do
Comin' for to carry me home
Tell all of 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
Well, now they're comin' for to carry me home
