Lyrics to I Stood on Banks Of Jordan

Lyrics to “I Stood On The Banks Of Jordan” I Stood On The Banks Of Jordan

Stood on the banks of Jordan one day
"To see the ship go sailing over"
I stood on the banks of Jordan, yes I did Lord
"To see the ship go bye"
I stood on the banks of Jordan, thank God
"To see the ship go sailing over"
I stood on the banks of Jordan one day my Lord, Lord
"To see the ship to see the ship of Zion go bye"

And when I saw it, I said,
Lord I got my ticket, please don’t leave me down here
You took my Father you came back and got my Mother,
You took everything to me that was so dear
And all I can do,
Is stand there on the banks of Jordan, Mother was going home
"To see the ship go sailing over"
I stood there on the banks Jordan, Lord have mercy, I had
"To see her ship go bye"

Listen, I know she’s waiting and
Watching, I told her I be home after while
Those was the last words I ever told my Mother, yes sir
She close her eyes and went on to glory with a smile and while she did
All I could do was, stand there on the banks of Jordan,
My heart was heavy as I watch the ship
"To see the ship go sailing over"

I stood there on the Jordan, Lord knows I did, I had
"To see the ship go bye"
Lord I show got my ticket and it stamp for glory land, I had
"To see the ship go bye"
