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 With his dear and loving care,
Will the Saviour lead us on,
To the hills and valleys fair,
Over Jordan?
Yes, we'll rest our weary feet
By the crystal waters, sweet,
When the peaceful shore we greet,
Over Jordan.

Chorus:
Over Jordan! Over Jordan!
Yes, we'll rest our weary feet,
By the crystal waters sweet,
Over Jordan! Over Jordan!
When the peaceful shore we greet,
Over Jordan!

2 Through the rocky wilderness,
Will the Saviour lead us on,
To the land we shall possess,
Over Jordan?
Yes, by night the wondrous ray,
Cloudly pillar by the day,
They shall guide us on our way,
Over Jordan.
[Chorus]

3 With his strong and mighty hand,
Will the Saviour lead us on,
To that good and pleasant land,
Over Jordan?
Yes, where vine and olive grow,
And the brooks and fountains flow,
Thirst nor hunger shall we know,
Over Jordan.
[Chorus]
