The Jordan is waiting for me to cross thru
My heart is aging, I can tell
So Lord, I'm asking for one last favor from You
Here's my heart--take it where You will

This life has shown me how we're mended and how we're torn
How it's OK to be lonely as long as you're free
Sometimes my ground was stoney, and sometines covered up with thorns
And only You could make it what it had to be and now that's it done
If they dressed me like a pauper, or if they dined me like a rpince
If they lay me with ym fathers, or if my ashes scatter ont he wind I don't care

Chorus:
When I leave I want to go out like Elijah
With a whirlwind to fuel my chariot of fire
And when I look back ont eh stars
It'll be like a candleight in Central Park
And it won't break my heart to say goodbye

There's people been friendly, but they'd never be your friends
Sometimes this has bent me to the ground
But now that this is all ending, I want to hear some music once again
`Cause it's the finest thing that I have ever found
But the Jordan is waiting, though I ain't seen the other side
Still they say you can't take what you have here
So on the road to salvation, I still out my thumb and He gives me a ride
And His music is already falling on my ears
There's people been talking, see they're worried about my soul
Well, I'm here to tell you I'll keep rocking till I'm sure it's my time to roll
And when I do

[chorus]
