218. Cross Over Jordan Today

1 Dost Thy soul ransomed from Egypt,
Yet in the wilderness stay?
Canaan’s fair land is before thee,
Cross over Jordan today.

Refrain:
Look, oh, my brother,
Canaan, the land of the blest,
Lies now before thee;
Haste to the place of thy rest.

2 Spend not thy life thus forever
Treading the wilderness way;
Enter the fullness of favor,
Cross over Jordan today. [Refrain]

3 Life will be pleasanter, sweeter,
Stony no longer the way;
Many the foes left behind thee—
Cross over Jordan today. [Refrain]

4 Why dost thou shrink from the crossing?
Thinkest thou still of delay?
Waiting will not make thee stronger,
Cross over Jordan today. [Refrain]

5 Thou art abundantly able,
Falter not now by the way;
Grace all-abounding is waiting,
Cross over Jordan today. [Refrain]
