54. At the Crossing of the Jordan I'll Be There

1 When the ransomed shall return to Zion fair,
When they cross the river Jordan I'll be there;
In their songs and everlasting joy I'll share,
At the crossing of the Jordan I'll be there.

Chorus:
I'll be there, I'll be there,
At the crossing of the Jordan I'll be there;
In the morn, bright and fair,
All the glories of that crossing I will share.

2 When I hear their songs, and view the sheaves they bear,
When they cross the river Jordan I'll be there;
Oh what rapture! oh, what bliss beyond compare!
At the crossing of the Jordan I'll be there. [Chorus]

3 When they go up home, eternal life to share,
When they cross the river Jordan I'll be there;
There we'll sing the song of "Moses and the Lamb,"
At the crossing of the Jordan I'll be there. [Chorus]
