Hymn/Song Information

THE WATERS OF JORDAN




With Jordanís honoured stream,
What other can compare?
There God for Israel once appeared,
And wrought deliverance there.


Between its mighty waves,
The tribes of Jacob go;
Like walls of brass the billows stand,
To form a passage through.


yet greater wonders still
In Jordan are displayed,
The Lord of all is there baptised,
By whom the streams were made.


Thus far he condescends
His purpose to declare,
Then institutes the sacred rite,
For all his followers here.


Now in the watery grave,
Though not in Jordanís flood,
We bow submissive to his will,
And give ourselves to God.
