[Spoken] Well, you know, I figure I'm here for a
reason tonight and, if the good Lord put it into my
heart to sing this song, then He intended to have me
sing it. So, I'm going to sing Wayfaring Stranger.

I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
Traveling through this world of woe;
And there's no sickness, toil or danger,
In that bright land to which I go.
I'm going there to see my father,
I'm going there no more to roam;
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.

I know bright clouds will gather around me,
I know my road is rough and steep;
But glorious fields lie out before me,
Where God's redeemed no longer weep.
I'm going there to see my mother,
I'm going there no more to roam;
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.

I long to sing Salvation's Story,
In concert with that angel band;
And I long to wear that crown of glory,
When I sail home to that soothing land.
I'm going there to see my Saviour,
I'm going there no more to roam;
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.

I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
Traveling through this world of woe;
But there's no heartache, toil or danger,
In that bright land to which I go.
I'm going there to see my father,
I'm going there no more to roam;
I'm only going over Jordan,
I'm only going over home.
I'm only going over home.

[Spoken] Good night. God bless.....
Y'all have a safe home.....
Thank you..... My pleasure.....
See ya down the road, everybody.
