Swing Low Sweet Chariot

by admin on January 22, 2012

“Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” was written by Wallis Willis, a Choctaw Freedman in the old Indian Territory. It was inspired by the Red River, which reminded Willis of the Prophet Elijah and his fiery chariot at the Jordan River. We sing it in tandem with the old spiritual “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
