God Will Be First

When to Jordan bank I came 
No where to go, I could not cross 
I knelt all broken and ashame 
Then a man stood there to carry me across 

Put your feet in the water he said 
And set the ark before, I will be first 
Trust me in your heart, I have led 
Your father's in the red sea, God will be first 

The desert behind was cold and so bare 
Lord, I am weary, I have no return 
Shake my doubt again, like a Sinai here 
By faith alone your power I discern 

My father is sleeping for you to come 
On the wake up morning, mother waits for you 
All the bride resplendant, now ransome 
Me, for your love alone is forever and true. 

I stood there that day, O, hear what I say 
The waters rolled into piles, a mighty dome 
The man with sword, O, he made a way 
Faith parted my Jordan, faith leads me home
