'Come Down To The River' - Poem by Whitney Albright

I’m standing at the river now
About to walk across
Watching my Lord from the other side
With his body covered in snowy gloss
He sets down his little lamb
And sets his eyes on me
I step into the river
That empties into the Dead Sea
Oh, Christ is so lovely
So noble, so mild
And so much gratefulness
Inside of me runs wild
Here at Jordan, I am baptized
And join in God’s greatest stock
All while my worthy Sheppard
Sits and watches his flock
Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers
Come down to the river today!
Christ is raising his wooden staff
Come down to the river to pray!
