One More Mountain To Cross

Two or three people have been doing searches on this site for the lyric’s to One More River To Cross” so I thought I would help them out.  It is a great song; my copy is by the Gaithers CD “Sing Your Blues Away.”  It is copyrighted music; so therefore, I did not convert it to MP3 and post it here.  But I don’t suppose it would hurt to give you the lyric’s … Throw it in the player and crank it up, that is the way I do it.

 

One more river to cross,

one more mountain to climb

one more valley that I gotta go thru

leaving my troubles behind

one more battle with the devil

and I know he’ll understand

I am going thru with Jesus hallelujah

Holding onto his nail scarred hand

Holding to his nail scarred hand

 

I have had a troubles and triumphs

In my little lifespan

An when I am standing alone

And the battle is hot

I always do the best that I can

I must have crossed a million valleys

And shed a million tears

But when I come to the river of Jordon hallelujah

Then I will have no fear

I will have no fear

 

One more river to cross,

one more mountain to climb

one more valley that I gotta go thru

leaving my troubles behind

one more battle with the devil

and I know he’ll understand

I am going thru with Jesus with hallelujah

Holding to his nail scarred hand

Holding to his nail scarred hand

 

Yet a lot of people talk about me since I walked this Calvary

This is just another valley I came thru as I pleased

I climbed a lot of mountains,

crossed a lot of streams

Gonna see old Journey, cold and dark

Probably the last for me, whoa probably last for me

 

One more river to cross,

No no

one more mountain to climb

climbing

one more valley that I gotta go thru

uh huuuh

leaving my troubles behind

troubles behind whoa

one more battle with the devil

yeah

and I know he’ll understand

yeahhhhh

I am going thru with Jesus hallelujah

Holding to his nail scarred hand

hallelujah

Holding to his nail scarred hand

 

One more river to cross,

Only one more

one more mountain to climb

one more valley that I gotta go thru

leaving my troubles behind

one more battle with the devil

and I know he’ll understand

I am going thru with Jesus hallelujah

Holding to his nail scarred hand

Holding to his nail scarred hand

Holding to his nail scarred hand.

 

Do it again!  (You should be clapping yo’ hands by now!)

 

One more river to cross,

one more mountain to climb

one more valley that I gotta go thru

leaving my troubles behind

one more battle with the devil

and I know he’ll understand

I am going thru with Jesus with hallelujah

Holding to his nail scarred hand

Holding to his nail scarred hand

 

Reprise ………..

 

(end)

    Debra is more than likely “long gone” but if she happens to check back in, there is what she wanted and you supplied it for her. Thanks.
