Where the Jordan flows

Just beyond the river Jordan

Representative Text

1 Just beyond the River Jordan there’s a land so bright and fair,
Where the wicked cannot enter, for the Lord is master there;
Not a breath of woe or sorrow thro’ that golden city blows;
For there’s naught but joy and gladness where the Jordan flows.

Just beyond the Jordan River, in that land of sweet repose,
There is light and life forever, where the Jordan flows;
Just beyond the Jordan River, in that land of sweet repose,
There is light and life forever, where the Jordan flows.

2 I can see the lov’d ones waiting with the ransomed on the shore;
I can hear them sing the praises of the Lord forevermore;
Ev’ry face is bright and joyful, as the heav’nly sunlight glows;
And I know my place is waiting, where the Jordan flows. [Refrain]

3 Weary sinners, raise your voices, let your glad hosanna’s ring,
Turn your eyes, with love-light beaming, to the palace of the King,
Where He’s made us many mansions, far away from earthly foes,
In that land of life eternal, where the Jordan flows. [Refrain]
