Description

SATB Choir, Solo, and Organ. A delicious arrangement of the spiritual. As with many of the spirituals, it's a bit tricky to work it into the lectionary offerings, but as a general/summer anthem you can't beat it. And we've managed to offer a few suggestions as well!

Lyrics

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

I lo,Oked over Jordon, and what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home?
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

If you get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home.
Tell all my friends I'm coming to,O,
Coming for to carry me home.
