River of Jordan
by Bill & Gloria Gaither

Album: Israel Homecoming
by Bill & Gloria Gaither


[Verse 1:]
To the River of Jordan our Savior went one day
And we read that John the Baptist met Him there

[Pre-Chorus A:]
And when John baptized Jesus in Jordan's rushing waters,
the mighty power of God filled the air.

[Chorus 1:]
Well, I'm on my way, gonna wade right in
I'm going down to the River of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul.

[Verse 2:]
King Naaman was stricken with dreaded leprosy and he sent for the man of God to pray.

[Pre-Chorus B:]
But Elisha said to Naaman "Go dip yourself in Jordan and let the cool waters wash your spots away."

[Chorus 2:]
So he went right down to the River of Jordan
He waded right in the rushing waters
He dipped himself in the River of Jordan
And the cool waters made him whole.

[Bridge:]
This River of Jordan is many miles away
And this mighty river I may never see.
But I'll find myself an altar in an old fashioned church
And my River of Jordan that will be...

(Chorus until end)
