Jordan

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Roses In The Snow (1980).

(Fred Rich)

Oh, come in as you tread life's journey
Take Jesus as your daily guide
Though you may feel pure and safely
Without him walking by your side.

But when you come to make the crossing
At the endin' of your pilgim's way
If you ever will meet our Saviour
You'll surely meet him on that day.

Well, look at that cold Jordan, look at these deep waters
Look at that wide river, oh hear the mighty billows roar
You'd better take Jesus with you, He's a true companion
For I'm sure without him that you never will make it o'er.

--- Instrumental ---

That awful day of judgement
Is coming in the by and by
We'll see our Lord descending
In Glory from on high.

So let us keep in touch with Jesus
and in his grace the love of God
That we may be ever called ready
when he calls us over Jordan's tide.

Now look at that cold Jordan, look at these deep waters
Look at that wide river, oh hear the mighty billows roar
You'd better take Jesus with you, He's a true companion
For I'm sure without him that you never will make it o'er.

Oh what, what you gonna do
Oh what, what you gonna say
Oh, how how you gonna feel
When you come to the end of the way?...
