Stanley Brothers – Jordan lyrics

Oh come and as you tread life's journey
Take Jesus as your daily guide
Though you may feel pure and saintly
Without him walkin by your side

But when you come to make the crossing
At the ending of your pilgrim way
If you ever will need our Savior
You'll surely need him on that day

(Now look at that) cold Jordan
(Look at its) deep waters
(Look at that) wide river
Oh hear the mighty billows roll

(You better take) Jesus with you
(He's a) true companion
(For I'm) sure without him
That you never will make it o'er

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

Oh let us keep in touch with Jesus
And in his precious love abide
We may be ever caught ready
When he calls us over Jordan's tide

(Oh what) oh what you gonna do
(Oh what) oh what you gonna say
(Oh how) oh how you gonna feel
When you come to the end of the way
