On The Jericho Road
                              
 
                G                      D    
As you travel along..... on the Jerico Road,
                                               G
Does the world seem all wrong..... and heavy a load?
                 G                             C
Just bring it to Christ,..... your sins all confess,
               G      D                     G
On the Jericho Road..... your heart will be blessed.


(Chorus)

               D                               G
On the Jericho Road..... there's room for just two,
               D                         G   
No more and no less,..... just Jesus and you;
                  C                            G
Each burden He'll bear,..... each sorrow He'll share.
                D                       G
There's never a care,..... for Jesus is there.
 
 
On the Jericho Road,..... blind Bartimaeus sat,
His life was a void,...... so empty and flat;
But Jesus appeared,..... one word bro't him sight,
On the Jericho Road,.... Christ banished his night.
 
(Chorus)
On the Jericho Road..... there's room for just two,
No more and no less,...... just Jesus and you;
Each burden He'll bear,.... each sorrow He'll share.
There's never a care,..... for Jesus is there.
 
O brother to you..... this message I bring,
Tho hope may be gone,..... He'll cause you to sing;
At Jesus' command..... sin's shackles must fall,
On the Jericho Road..... will you answer His call.
 
(Chorus)
On the Jericho Road..... there's room for just two,
No more and no less,..... just Jesus and you;
Each burden He'll bear,..... each sorrow He'll share.
There's never a care,..... for Jesus is there.
