Cold Jordan Lyrics - Grateful Dead

Review The Song (1)



Oh sinning is a gentilized journey, take Jesus as your daily guide
Though you may feel pure and saintly without Him walking by your side
And when you come to make your crossing at the end of the pilgrim's way
If you ever will meet your savior, you will surely meet him on that day

Now look at that cold Jordan, RECKON its deep water
Look at that wide river Oh heavy mighty billows roll
You better take Jesus with you, he's a true companion
Oh I'm sure without him that you never will make it home

That awful day of judgment is coming in the by and by
We'll see our Lord descending in ( ) glory from on high
Oh, let us KEEP in touch with Jesus and in the special love of God
And MAY WE EVER BE READY when he CALLS OVER Jordan's tide
Now look at that cold Jordan, look at its deep water
Look at that wide river Oh heavy mighty billows roll
You better take Jesus with you, he's a true companion
Oh I'm sure without him that you never will make it home

Now what you gonna do, Oh what you gonna say
Oh how you gonna feel when you come to the end of the way?

Through the haze of at least three hits of acid, the message of this song resonated subliminally. It was, indeed, the voice of my wonderful Lord and Savior planting a seed in my soul.

Raised a secular Jew, I had no idea that there was anything other than the material world. Until I discovered the wonderful synchronicity of the early Grateful Dead. At Harpur College (my alma mater), on May 2, 1970 (Dick's Pick's 8, and Dick Latvala's favorite show) -- somehow the unsuspected existence of a spirit world broke in on me. It was a considerable journey out of drugs, and through Eastern religions before I embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior on August 11th-12th, 1973. Now a Christian for almost 40 years, and a minister for 30, I date my spiritual awakening to that wild night in Binghamton.

In addition to that experience, I must thank Johann Sebastian Bach for not being an idiot and being a heartfelt Christian. I was exposed to his music in my teens, and wondered how such a brilliant man could believe in Christianity, which I considered to be complete superstition, and the one thing in the world that was guaranteed not to be true.

It's seems a shame to me that none of my idols in the Grateful Dead ever grasped the reality of a personal God Whose name is Jesus -- even though their shamanism showed me the way. I don't think that the Dead performed Cold Jordan very often -- I only heard it that one time at Binghamton. But I thank God that Jesus is more powerful than the satanic environment that the Holy Spirit led me out of. If anybody ever reads this review: Recieve Jesus, and follow Him! When you come to the end of the way, and along the road as well, you will never be sorry!

God bless you all!
