Track Name: Wayfaring Stranger
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through, this world of woe
Yet there's no sickness, toil nor danger
In that bright world, to which I go

I'm going there to see my momma
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I know dark clouds will gather round me
I know my way is rough and steep
Those beautiful fields lie just beyond me
Where souls redeemed, their vigils keep

I'm going home to be with Jesus
He said He'd meet me when I come
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home
Track Name: I Am A Pilgrim
I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Travelling through this wearisome land
I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord
And it's not, not made by hand

I've got a mother, father, son and a brother
Who have gone this way before
I am determined to go and see them, good Lord
For they're on that other shore

I'm goin' down to the river of Jordan
Just to clean my wearisome soul
If I can just touch the hem of his garment, good Lord
Then I know he'll take me home

I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Travelling through this wearisome land
I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord
And it's not, not made by hand
Track Name: (In the) Sweet By And By
There’s a land that is fairer than day,
And by faith we can see it afar;
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there.

Refrain:
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

Refrain:
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

To our beautiful Father above,
We will offer our tribute of praise
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days.

In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.
Track Name: Pine Log Cabin
There's a little pine log cabin, waiting down in welcome valley
There's an open door and when my roamins o'er, I'm going back home
There's a mother daily praying , waiting for my home ward strayin
To that little pine log cabin never more to roam

I want to see the children playing by the weeping willow swayin
Hear my mother softly praying while the mocking bird sings so sweetly
How my weary heart is yearning just to be again returning
To the little pine log cabin in the land of my dreams

Often when alone I still dream Of the days beside the mill stream
With my dad and mother and my little brother happy all day
I can see the shadows falling and I hear voices callin from the little pine log cabin at the end of the way

I want to see the children playing by the weeping willow swayin
Hear my mother softly praying while the mocking bird sings so sweetly
How my weary heart is yearning just to be again returning
To that little pine log cabin in the land of my dreams

There's a little lamp light shinning there's a little trail a winding
down a little valley to a little cabin peaceful and still
Honey suckle vines are growing and I know soon I'll be going to that little pine log cabin at the foot of the hill

I want to see the children playing by the weeping willow swayin
Hear my mother softly praying while the mocking bird sings so sweetly
How my weary heart is yearning just to be again returning
To that little pine log cabin in the land of my dreams
Track Name: Love Lifted Me
I was sinking deep in sin
Far from the peaceful shore
Very deeply stained within
Sinking to rise no more

But the Master of the sea
Heard my despairing cry
From the waters lifted me
Now safe am I

Love lifted me
Love lifted me
When nothing else would help
Love lifted me

Love lifted me
Love lifted me
When nothing else would help
Love lifted me

All my heart I give to Him
Ever to Him I'll cling
In His blessed presence live
Ever His praises sing
Love so mighty and so free
Merits my soul's best song
Faithful loving service too
To Him belong

Love lifted me
Love lifted me
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me

Love lifted me
Love lifted me
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me

Love lifted me
Love lifted me
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me

Love lifted me
Love lifted me
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me
