Daily Meditation: Swing Low

Posted: Updated:

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a rendition of classic spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" sung by American folk singer Joan Baez. This timeless song inspires us to consider the home "beyond" this reality that many hold close in their hearts.

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

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

And I looked over yonder and what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home?
So a band, a band of angels, it was a coming for me,
Coming for to carry you on home.

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

Well if you get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home.
Tell all my friends, I'm a coming too,
Coming for to carry me home.
