Lyrics[]

Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
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
I saw a band of angels comin' after me
Comin' for to carry me home

(Repeat Chorus)

If you get back to heaven before I do
Comin' for to carry me home
You'll tell all my friends, I'll be comin' there too
Comin' for to carry me home

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
