Oh, cross the river Jordan, boys, cross it while you can
Cross the river Jordan, boys, take the promised land,
we've reached the promised land.
When Moses said to Pharaoh, boys, let my people go,
we said goodbye to Egypt-land, and down the road we'd go,
boys, down the road we'd go.
We thought we'd reached the bitter end,
The Red Sea close at hand
But God did part the water there,
We crossed it on dry land, boys, we crossed it on dry land
We made it through the wilderness, across that barren land,
We made it through the wilderness,
Led by God's right hand, boys, led by God's right hand.
Oh, Caleb said to Joshua, there's giants in the land,
But God has made His promises
To take the promised land, boys, let's take the promised land
