    1. You stand in the desert of sin and despair;
    You don't know the Savior, His love or His care.
    But He stands at the river, and holds out His hand;
    Cross over the river to Canaan's fair land.

    Chorus: O, won't you cross over to Canaan's fair land;
    The Savior is waiting, and He understands.
    He'll save you and keep you, so reach out your hand;
    Cross over the river to Canaan's fair land.

    2. O, come to the Savior, He's waiting for you;
    You stand in the darkness of fear and of gloom.
    Cross over the river, step into the light;
    O, come to the Savior, He'll conquer your night.
