1. Oh, the river of Jordan is so wide,
One more river to cross;
I… don't know how to get on the other side;
One more river to cross.

CHORUS.

2. I have some friends before me gone,
One more river to cross;
By the grace of… God I'll… follow on;
One more river to cross.

CHORUS.

3. Shout, Shout, Satan's about,
One more river to cross;
Shut your door and keep him out;
One more river to cross.

CHORUS.

4. Old Satan is a snake in the grass,
One more river to cross;
If… you don't mind he'll get you at last;
One more river to cross.

CHORUS.
