’Tis a blessèd hope, and it cheers my soul,
I shall rest by and by over Jordan;
When my work is done and my crown is won,
I shall rest, sweetly rest over Jordan.

Refrain

Over Jordan, over Jordan, I shall rest
Sweetly rest by and by;
’Tis a precious hope, ’tis a blessèd hope,
I shall rest, sweetly rest over Jordan.

’Tis a blessèd hope which my Savior gives,
I shall rest by and by over Jordan;
I shall see Him there in His mansion fair,
When I rest, sweetly rest over Jordan.

Refrain

With a steadfast faith I will labor on,
I shall rest, sweetly rest over Jordan;
O what joy ’twill be the redeemed to see,
When I rest, sweetly rest, over Jordan.

Refrain
