Text

Deep river, my home is over Jordan.
Deep river, Lord,
I want to cross over into camp ground.

Oh, don’t you want to go to that gospel feast?
That promised land, where all is peace?

Deep river. . . .

Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus.
Steal away, steal away home,
I ain’t got long to stay here.

My Lord calls me, He calls me by the thunder;
The trumpet sounds within-a my soul.
I ain’t got long to stay here.

My Lord calls me, He calls me by the lightning.
The trumpet sounds within-a my soul.
I ain’t got long to stay here.

Steal away. . . .
