Absent Friends – The Water Is Wide lyrics
The water is wide
I cannot cross over
And neither have i wings to fly
Build me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row
My love and i

There is a ship
And she sails the sea
She's loaded deep, as deep can be
But not so deep as the love i'm in
I know not how i sink or swim
Deep river
My home is over jordan
Deep river, lord
I want to cross over into campground

Deep river
My home is over jordan
Deep river, lord
I want to cross over into campground

Oh, don't you want to go
To that gospel feast
That promised land,
Where all is peace

Deep river, lord
I want to cross over into campground
The water is wide
I cannot cross over
And neither have i wings to fly
Build me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row
My love and i
And both shall row
My love and i
