Kevin Lucas What a wonderful weaving of the life and death of one of God's great servants, T J Jackson! I saw the documentary and had to fast forward to see who did that wonderful song! Thank you so much! I have a new favorite!

about

Judy was asked by producer/videographer Brian Barkley to write a song based on Stonewall Jackson's dying words for his excellent documentary, Warriors of Honor - The Christian Faith and Character of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. This song also includes references to Gen. Jackson's favorite verse in the Bible, Rom. 8:28, and his desire to die on a sabbath, which he did, in God's providence.

lyrics

Let Us Cross Over

Let us cross over that shining river,
And rest 'neath the shade of the trees;
Fly away on a sabbath, O day of rest and gladness!
To all eternity, to all eternity!

Jesus, my Captain, my Savior calls me
To lay my weapons down
And exchange this tattered uniform
For a glorious robe and crown, a glorious robe and crown!

There is a promise, a sure foundation
On which, unshaken, I've stood --
That to those who love & serve the Lord,
He works all things all things for good,
He works all things for good.

Let us cross over that shining river,
My race on earth is run;
I have fought the good fight, finished my course,
The victory is won, the victory is won!!
