This Side of the Jordan

Until today,

I’ve been able to handle;

All of the problems

That have come my way.

 

But as I stand,

On the bank of this river;

My eyes can see

There’s no way to cross;

The river’s too wide.

 

The chilly winds blow,

This side of the Jordan;

And I wish I could

Cross to the other side.

I look for a way

Just got to get over;

But can’t seem to find

A way to go.

 

Then, like a dream

The wind seems to tell me;

You’ve got to walk by faith

To get across to the other side.

 

The chilly winds blow

This side of the Jordan;

And I wish I could

Cross to the other side.

 

Going to walk by faith

In God my Maker;

Going to listen each day

To what He has to say.

 

And then some day,

When I stand at that river;

I’ll step by faith and walk

Across to the other side.
