Swing Low Sweet Chariot Nursery Rhyme Lyrics

 

Description:

“Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” is an American negro spiritual. The earliest known recording was in 1909, by the Fisk Jubilee Singers of Fisk University. “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” may have been written by Wallis Willis, a Choctaw freedman in the old Indian Territory in what is now Choctaw County, near the County seat of Hugo, Oklahoma sometime after 1865. He may have been inspired by the Red River, which reminded him of the Jordan River and of the Prophet Elijah’s being taken to heaven by a chariot. Some sources claim that this song and “Steal Away” (also sung by Willis) had lyrics that referred to the Underground Railroad, the freedom movement that helped black people escape from Southern slavery to the North and Canada.

 

Lyrics To “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.

When I looked over Jordan,
And what did I see,
Comin’ for
to carry me home,
A band of angels comin’ after me,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.

Sometimes I’m up,
and sometimes I’m down,
Coming for
to carry me home
But still, my soul feels
heavenly bound.
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.

The brightest day that I can say,
Coming for to carry me home
When Jesus washed my sins away.
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.

If I get there before you do,
Coming for to carry me home
I’ll cut a hole
and pull you through.
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Comin’ for
to carry me home.
