"River Of Jordan"
(Hazel Houser)

To the river of Jordan our Savior went one day
And we read that John the Baptist met him there
When John baptized Jesus in Jordan's rushing waters
The mighty power of God filled the air

I'm on my way (to the river of Jordan)
Gonna wade right in (in the rushing waters)
I'm goin' down (I'm goin' down to the river of Jordan)
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul

King Naimen was stricken with dreaded leprosy
And he sent for the man of God to pray
But Elijah said to Naimen, go dip yourself in Jordan
And let the cool water wash your spots away

So he went right down (to the river of Jordan)
He waded right in (in the rushing water)
He dipped himself (He dipped himself in river of Jordan)
And the cool waters made him whole

The River of Jordan is many miles away
This mighty river I may never see
But I'll find myself an altar in an old fashioned church
My river of Jordan that will be
