Subject: Lyr Add: TAKE ME OVER JORDAN
From: wysiwyg
Date: 23 Mar 05 - 09:24 PM

As sung-- and I think written-- by Becky Buller. VERY pretty tune.

See/hear the full-length video HERE.

~S~

====================================================================

TAKE ME OVER JORDAN

Many tears have been shed from these tired eyes
My hands are calloused and they're worn.
This earthly body needs to sleep awhile,
And a longing echoes through my soul.

Let me see the faces of my loved ones.
Let this bent and broken spirit fly!
Take me over Jordan to that home beyond the sun,
That land where we'll never die.

And there's a crown of life waitin' there for me,
In those nail-scarred hands I love so well,
That suffered great pain and agony
So that we need not taste the depth of hell.

And we'll see the faces of our loved ones.
As our bent and broken spirits fly!
Take me over Jordan to that home beyond the sun,
That land where we'll never die.

Let me see the faces of my loved ones.
Let this bent and broken spirit fly!
Take me over Jordan to that home beyond the sun,
That land where we'll never die.

Take me over Jordan to that home beyond the sun,
That land where we'll never die.

'Tis Jordan's river, and I must go 'cross,
'Tis Jordan's river, and I must go 'cross,
'Tis Jordan's river and I must go 'cross;
Poor sinner, fare you well.

Chorus-
Am I a soldier of the Cross?
Yes, my Lord!
Or must I count this soul as lost?
Yes, my Lord!

As I go down the stream of time,
Yes, my Lord!
I leave this sinful world behind,
Yes, my Lord!

Old Satan thinks he'll get us all,

Because in Adam we did fall.
Yes, my Lord!

If you want to see old Satan run,
Yes, my Lord!
Just shoot him with a gospel-gun,
Yes my Lord!

Lyr. Add: Way Over Jordan
Jubilee Singers

Chorus
Oh, way over Jordan,
View the land, view the land,
Way over Jordan,
Oh, view the heav'nly land.

1
I want to go to heaven when I die!
View the land, view the land;
To shout salvation as I fly,
Oh, view the heav'nly land.
2
Old Satan's mad, and I am glad,
View the land, view the land;
He miss'd that soul he thought he had,
O view the heav'nly land.
3
You say you're aiming for the skies,
View the land, view the land;
Why don't you stop your telling lies?
O view the heav'nly land.
4
You say your Lord has set you free,
View the land, view the land;
Why don't you let your neighbours be?
O view the heav'nly land.

No. 82, with music, J. B. T. Marsh, c. 1880-1890, The Story of the Jubilee Singers; with Their Songs.
