I believe my steps are growing wearier each day
Still, Iíve got a journey on my mind
Cares of this old world have ceased to make me want to stay
And my one regret is leaving you behind.

If it proves to be his will that I am first to go
And somehow Iíve a feeling it will be
When it comes your time to travel likewise donít you feel lost
For I will be the first one that you see.

Chorus:
And Iíll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
Iíll be waiting drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand.

Through this world we have laboured hard to earn our meagre fare
Itís brought us trembling hands and failing eyes
Iíll just rest here on the shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come and then weíll see paradise.

Chorus:
And Iíll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
Iíll be waiting drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand.

Chorus:
And Iíll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
Iíll be waiting drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand.
