The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

I Am a Pilgrim [core]

I am a 5 pilgrim and a 1 stranger
Traveling 4 through this wearisome 1 land
I've got a home in that yonder 4 city, good Lord
And it's 1 not (oh Lord it's 5 not) not made by 1 hand

I've got a mother, a sister and a brother
Who have gone on before
I'm determined to go and see them, good Lord
Over on (all over on) that distant shore

I'm going down to the river of Jordan
Just to ease my weary soul
If I could touch but the hem of His garment, good Lord
I do believe (yes I believe) it would make me whole
