'Wayfaring Stranger' Live Performance From Bluegrass Family Band

Get ready for a dose of nostalgia as The Petersens perform a live rendition of ‘Wayfaring Stranger.’ This classic folk tune can be traced all the way back to the early 19th century. Over the decades, many modern artists have covered the song, letting it live on for years to come. Some of the most notable performances come from Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Burl Ives.


“I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
Travelling through this world below
There's no sickness, no toil, nor danger
In that bright land to which I go”

The Petersens are a family band from Branson, Missouri. This bluegrass ensemble has traveled all around the world sharing their musical talents, but you can normally find them at home in Branson.

For ten seasons, The Petersens have performed at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.

Today, they are lending their unique sound to ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ and it’s the perfect blend of folk and bluegrass.

“I'm going there to see my Father
And all my loved ones who've gone on
I'm just going over Jordan
I'm just going over home”

As you hear these words, remember that we are all strangers on the Earth but we are united by our Father in Heaven. One day, we will all be together and strangers no more.

Leviticus 19:34 “You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”
