Jordan's Shore


J. T. White

Psalmist, Hymn 1173

Repeat after each line:


On Jordan's stormy banks I stand,

And cast a wishful eye

To Canaan's fair and happy land,

Where my possessions lie


O the transporting, rapturous scene,

That rises to my sight;

Sweet fields arrayed in living green,

And rivers of delight!


O'er all those wide extended plains

Shines one eternal day;

There God the Son forever reigns,

And scatters night away.


No chilling winds, nor poisonous breath,

Can reach that healthful shore;

Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,

Are felt and feared no more.


When shall I reach that happy place,

And be forever blest?

When shall I see my Father's face,

And in his bosom rest?


Filled with delight, my raptured soul

Would here no longer stay:

Though Jordan's waves around me roll,

I'd fearless launch away.

On the other side of Jordan, Hallelujah!
