Representative Text

1 I know, at the river of death,
My Savior will be at my side,
His presence so near
Will banish all fear,
And He will the waters divine.

Refrain:
Yes, Jesus will carry me over the river,
Yes, Jesus will carry me o’er;
He’ll carry me o’er to the glorified shore,
Yes Jesus will carry me o’er.

2 I fear not to enter the flood,
Tho’ wildly its billows may roll,
With Jesus my guide,
No ill can betide,
For He will the tempest control. [Refrain]

3 I know when the river I cross
That Jesus will carry me o’er;
Upheld by His arm,
I’ll suffer no harm,
But safely I’ll reach the blest shore. [Refrain]

4 Oh, when to cross over the tide,
To me the glad summons shall come,
With Christ as my light,
The way will be bright,
And angels will welcome me home. [Refrain]
