Cold Jordan Lyrics

Oh, sinning is a gentilized journey
Take Jesus as your daily guide
Though you may feel pure and saintly
Without Him walking by your side

And when you come to make your crossing
At the end of the pilgrim's way
If you ever will meet your Savior
You will surely meet Him on that day

Now look at that cold Jordan
Look at its deep water
Look at that wide river
Oh, heavy mighty billows roll

You better take Jesus with you
He's a true companion
Oh, I'm sure without Him
That you never will make it home

That awful day of judgment
Is coming in the by and by
We'll see our Lord descending
In the glory from on high Oh, let us get in touch with Jesus
And in the special love of God
And maybe ever get ready
When he comes on Jordan's tide

Now look at that cold Jordan
Look at its deep water
Look at that wide river
Oh, heavy mighty billows roll

You better take Jesus with you
He's a true companion
Oh, I'm sure without Him that
You never will make it home

Now what you gonna do?
Oh, what you gonna say?
Oh, how you gonna feel
When you come to the end of the way?
