Jordan Passed.
 
Death over. Jordan is the Styx of Christian mythology, because it was the river which separated the wilderness [of this world] from the promised land.   1
       
“If I still hold closely to Him,
       
What hath He at last?
       
Sorrow vanquished, labour ended,
       
Jordan passed.”
