I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger

The folk song "I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger" was performed by Jos Slovick in the film 1917, directed by Sam Mendes. The a cappella version of the song was recorded by Jos and filmed at Abbey Road Studios in London.

"I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger" arrives in the wake of Thomas Newman’s critically acclaimed score for 1917. Towards the end of the film, actor Jos Slovick appears as a British soldier singing the song to his fellow troops prior to battle. Of the release, Slovick says, “1917 is an incredible film to be part of. It felt like a special moment when we filmed that scene, and I’m so pleased it’s resonating with people. Recording the song at Abbey Road Studios was a dream come true.”

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Travelling through this world alone
There is no sickness, toil nor danger
In that fair land to which I go

I'm going home to see my mother
I'm going home, no more to roam
I am onlygoing over Jordan
I am only going over home

I know dark clouds will hover o'er me
I know my pathway is rough and steep
But golden fields lie out before me
Where weary eyes no more will weep

I'm going home to see my father
I'm going home, no more to roam
I am only going over Jordan
I am only going over home
