Lyrics

Verse 1
When we near the river Jordan,
With its rushing, swelling tide,
Let us pur our trust in Jesus as we go;
We shall hear his gentle whisper,
“Fear not, I am by thy side,”
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there.

Chorus
At the crossing over Jordan,
At the crossing he’ll be there;
There’ll be music, there’ll be shouting
Just beyond the swelling tide,
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there.

Verse 2
As we cross the river Jordan,
With its flood that none can check,
Then the Saviour’s guiding hand will lead us o’er;
Tho’ the billow’s roar be mighty,
There is nothing we need fear,
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there.

Verse 3
We are nearing that dark river
Which we all must cross some day;
But the faithful of the Father need not fear,
For the Saviour there is waiting,
He will safely take us o’erm
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there.
