I Won't Have to Cross Jordan Alone
|When I come to the river at the ending of
When the last winds of sorrow have blown
There'll be somebody waiting to show me the way I won't have to cross Jordan alone
Often times I'm forsaken and weary and sad, When it seems that my friends have all gone;
Thee is one tho't that cheers me and makes my heart glad, I won't have to cross Jordan
Tho' the billows of sorrow and
trouble may sweep, Christ the Savior will care for His own; Till the end of the journey,
my soul He will keep, I won't have to cross Jordan alone.
I won't have to cross Jordan alone. Jesus died for my
sins to atone; When the darkness I see, He'll be waiting for me,
I won't have to cross Jordan alone.
