"Waitin' on the Far Side Banks of Jordan" as written by and Terry Stephen Smith....
I'll admit my steps are growing wearier each day
Still I've got a certain journey on my mind
Lures of this old world have ceased to make me want to stay
My one regret is leaving you be-hind

If it proves to be his will that I am first to cross
And somehow I've a feeling it will be
When it comes your turn to travel likewise don't feel lost
For I will be the first one that you'll see

And I'll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
I'll be sitting drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow water reaching for your hand

Through this life we've labored long to earn our meager fare
It's brought us trembling hands and failing eyes
So I'll just rest there on that shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come then we'll see para-dise

And I'll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
I'll be sitting drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow water reaching for your hand

And I'll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
I'll be sitting drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow water reaching for your hand
