CROSSING THE JORDAN
(FROM JOSUE 1-8)
PREPARATIONS TO CROSS
After Moses, the servant of the Lord, had died,
then onto Joshua, said the Lord,
“My servant Moses is dead. Now prepare
to cross the Jordan here, toward
the land I will give to this people.
Your domain it shall be yet.
As I promised Moses, I will deliver
every place your feet shall set.
No one will withstand you while you live.
As I was with Moses, I will be
with you; I will not forsake you.
Be firm so that you may see
the people possess the land I swore
to their fathers I would give.
Above all, be firm to observe with care
the Law Moses enjoined you to live.
Do not stray from it right or left
