Death Song🌑

August 17, 2019

I Am A Poor Wayfaring Stranger.

This beautiful hymn (and others) can be found in the public domain here:

“I am a poor Wayfaring Stranger,

Traveling through this world of woe.

Yet, there’s no sickness, toil or danger,

In that bright world 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.”

Southern American Folk Hymn

With love and gratitude,

Nina Zain 😊

    1. Glad you like it, Ian. Hymns are lovely to hum. This really is a beautiful piece. It is actually one of the first pieces of music I learned to play when I was a kid. I’ll keep practicing…the words are so lovely…”…I’ll drop the cross of self-denial…”
      Much love back to you! You are welcome. 🙏🏻

      1. Good morning, Michelle! This is one of the first songs I learned to play on the clarinet when I was 10 years old. Oh goodness that was years ago!

        I just googled Eva Cassidy—what a powerful voice! Thank you for sharing—I’ll look for her more. 💓

      2. AWW I love that you goggled her. She actually died from cancer before she became popular. She’s more popular now then when she was alive. That’s so amazing to me that you love this song! You have a beautiful songbird soul like hers. ❤ Blessings on your day!
