|: Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin' for to carry me home! :| 
I looked over Jordan and what did I see,
Comin' for to carry me home!
A band of angels comin' after me,
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,
Jess tell my friends that I'm acomin' too,
Comin' for to carry me home. 

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

I'm sometimes up and sometimes down,
Comin' for to carry me home,
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
Comin' for to carry me home!
