Another Wide River to Cross

I've (A) stood on the bank by the weeping willow,
With another wide river to cross.
(D) Another wide river to cross.
With (A) another wide river to cross.
I believe I can make it to the other side,
'Cos I feel a hand on me,
Helping (D) me with (E) another wide river to (A) cross.

When I wake up to many a day,
With another wide river to cross.  
Another wide river to cross.
Another wide river to cross.
I jump right in the dark and I swim right on, toward the light on the other side.
It's always there when there's another wide river to cross.  

(Key change to B for the rest of the song)

Oh the (B) whirlpools twist and pull at me,
With another wide river to cross.
(E) Another wide river to cross.
With (B) another wide river to cross.
If I reach up a hand is always reaching down for me.
It's always (E) there when there's (F#) another wide river to (B) cross.

Well the river Jordan is a narrow stream,
But it's another wide river to cross.
It's another wide river to cross.
Another wide river to cross.
But I believe that there's a resting place that's provided just for me,
On the heaven's side of another wide river to cross.

(Repeat last verse)
