174. Deep River

Deep river,
my home is over Jordan,
deep river,
Lord, I want to cross over into campground.

1 Oh, don't you want to go
to that gospel feast,
that promised land
where all is peace? Oh, [Refrain]

2 Oh, when I get to heaven,
I'll take my seat,
and cast my crown
at Jesus' feet. Oh, [Refrain]
