On The Jericho Road
performed by:
Propes Quartet

As you travel along on the Jericho Road
Does the world seem all wrong and heavy yourload?
Just bring it to Christ, your sins all confess
On the Jericho Road your heart He will bless.

Chorus:
On the Jericho Road, there's room for just two
No more and no less, just Jesus and you
Each burden he'll bear, each sorrow he'll share
There's never a care for Jesus, is there?

On the Jericho Road, blind Bartemaeus sat
His life was a void so empty and flat
But Jesus appeared, one word brought him sight
On the Jericho Road Christ banished his night.

Chorus:
On the Jericho Road, there's room for just two
No more and no less, just Jesus and you
Each burden he'll bear, each sorrow he'll share
There's never a care for Jesus, is there?

O my brother, to you this message I bring
Though hope may be gone, He'll cause you to sing
At Jesus command sin's shackles must fall
On the Jericho Road will you answer his call?

Chorus:
On the Jericho Road, there's room for just two
No more and no less, just Jesus and you
Each burden he'll bear, each sorrow he'll share
There's never a care for Jesus, is there?

as you travel along
on the jericho road

(Elvis: I would take young Johnny Cash to do this)

Does the road seem all long and heavy your load
Just take it to Christ your sins all confess
On the Jericho Road your heart He will bless
