I Stood On The Banks Of Jordan Lyrics

I STOOD ON THE BANKS OF JORDAN

You know I had to stand one day and watch mother go home
I stood on the banks of Jordan and
watched the ship of Zion go sailing over
Lord help us tonight

Stood on the banks of Jordan one day. See those ships go sailing over
I stood on the banks of Jordan yes I did. See those ships go by

I stood on the banks of Jordan thank God to
see those ships. See those ships go sailing over
I stood on the banks of Jordan one day
my Lord oh to see. See those ships go by
And when I saw it I said

Lord, I've 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 could do was stand there on
the banks of Jordan. . Mother was going home
See those ships go sailing over
I stood on the banks of Jordan Lord have
mercy I had to see. See those ships go by

I know she's waiting and watching.
I told her I'd be home after a while
Those were the last words I ever told my mother.
She closed her eyes and she 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 and I watched the ship
See those ships go sailing over
I stood on the banks of Jordan Lord knows
I did I had to see. See those ships go by

Lord, I sho' got my ticket. And it's stamped for glory land
I don't the ole ship to leave me.
It's the only transportation I got to glory land
Lord, Lord

Everyday I'm standing here. See those ships go sailing over
I stood on the banks of Jordan oh yes I did,
oh yes I did, oh yes I did, oh yes I did. See those ships go by

Stood on the banks of Jordan my father
went home one day I saw Father's ship.
See those ships go sailing over
I stood on the banks of Jordan oh yes I did, See those ships go by

Lord, Lord. See those ships go by
Everyday my friends are leaving here children. See those ships go by
Every week I'm standing by the grave side to
see somebody's ship go by. See those ships go by
Hey! Hey! Heyy! See those ships go by
Heeeeyyyyy! See those ships go by
