Representative Text

1 Tidings from over the Jordan,
News from our Saviour in glory,
Borne in a wonderful story,
Telling of rapture and love;
Tidings from over the Jordan;
Hear the glad message declaring
Hope to the lone and despairing,
Joy to the poor and oppressed.

Marching, marching,
Steadily on, rejoicing;
Marching, marching,
cheerily on we go;
Tidings of joy invite us,
Echoes of song delight us;
Marching, marching,
Cheerily onward we go.

2 Tidings from over the Jordan;
All, if they will, may receive them;
Happy are they who believe them,
Looking to Jesus for rest;
Tidings from over the Jordan;
Voices are tenderly calling,
Come where no shadows are falling,
Come to the land of the blest. [Refrain]

3 Tidings from over the Jordan;
There is the city of gladness,
End of all weeping and sadness,
Bright with Immanuel’s love;
There are the fold and the Shepherd,
There is the beautiful river.
There may we dwell and forever,
Safe in the pastures above. [Refrain]
