37. The Waters of Jordan may Roll

1 The waves of death's river are dark and cold,
But Jesus Himself has pass'd thro';
The Savior in mercy thy hand will hold:
His promise is faithful and true.

Chorus:
Oh, the waters of Jordan may roll,
But Jesus will carry me through;
His peace is now filling my soul,
Oh, that it were given to you!

2 On this side the river is war and strife
'Gainst sin by God's faithful few,
Yet trembling sinners are ent'ring life,
The pow'r that will carry them thro'. [Chorus]

3 On this side the river a heav'nly peace
Is offered to you and to me;
From doubting and sin there is sweet release,
Till crossing with Jesus to be. [Chorus]

4 As we ford the river in sight of the land,
Our loved ones will welcome us o'er;
We'll clasp their hands on the shining strand,
And sing on the golden shore. [Chorus]
