117. Through the Jordan

1 Sing aloud a joyful chorus!
Come with rejoicing,
Praising him who guided his people of old;
For the God who led the fathers
Liveth forever,
And in tender mercy doth the children behold.

Through the Jordan, through the Jordan,
We will go when he gives us the word;
In the Jordan, in the Jordan,
We are safe with the ark of the Lord.

2 When thou passest thro' the waters,
I will be with thee,
They shall not o'erflow thee nor give thee alarm;
Lo! the Holy One of Israel,
Mighty to save thee,
Guardeth still the loved ones who will lean on his arm. [Refrain]

3 Thro' the flames, if Jesus calls us,
We'll go with singing,
Wheresoe'er he leadeth we fear not to stand.
Trusting in the blessed promise,
"I'm with you always,
Till you reach the mansions of the fair promised land." [Refrain]
