During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1 When we have come to Jordan’s tide,
There’ll be no dark river there;
With Jesus standing close beside,
There’ll be no dark river there.
His boundless grace shall light the place
With beams of glory fair,
And in the sunshine from His face,
There’ll be no dark river there.

Refrain:
There’ll be no dark river there,
There’ll be no dark river there;
Upon His breast we’ll sweetly rest,
There’ll be no dark river there.

2 With angels bending from above,
There’ll be no dark river there;
In fellowship with Him we love,
There’ll be no dark river there.
His word divine shall brightly shine,
His endless life we’ll share;
When all to Jesus we resign,
There’ll be no dark river there. [Refrain]

3 And when we’ve crossed the mystic tide,
There’ll be no dark river there;
When we have reached the other side,
There’ll be no dark river there.
And hand in hand we’ll walk the strand
With loved ones bright and fair,
For in that happy heav’nly land,
There’ll be no dark river there. [Refrain]

4 Let this blest thought fresh courage give,
There’ll be no dark river there;
In that bright home of peace and love,
There’ll be no dark river there.
The gate ajar, we see afar,
Beyond this world of care;
Tho’ Jordan’s stream may us divide,
There’ll be no dark river there. [Refrain]
