jordan Lyrics – Joy Oladokun

They drowned me in the Jordan
When they tried to wash me clean
They got the stains out
But now it’s too damn hard to breathe
They told me he’s a good lord
As they tied shackles to my feet
They drowned me in the Jordan
And then they walked away from me

I washed up on the shores alone
In a tattered wedding gown
Disillusioned my heart hardened
Everything I’d known had let me down, down, down
That is where you found me
Grace and whiskey on your breath
Pulled me back on my feet
Taught me how to dance again

Now we’re building our own promised land
On this ground which we stand
God bless the work of our hands
And make good on our plans
Now I’ve found love there’s no turning back

I don’t feel
So young now
I gave the best years of my life a way
Tried to Build an institution
Instead of trying to keep the faith
Here in the wild you
You Loved me though I was not lovely or deserving
You Kissed the curse from my lips
Taught them to rejoice again

Now we’re building our own promised land
On this new ground which we stand
God bless the work of our hands
And make good on our plans
Now I’ve found love there’s no turning back

Now I’ve found love there’s no turning back
