Larry Norman – Down The Line lyrics

The river is deep, and the river is wide
But I'm gonna cross over when I see my ride.
'Cause I got a home on the other side

When the time has come I'll close my eyes
Shut out that world with all it's lies
And I'll lay me down until I rise.

When I awake I'll see his face
Of this world's tears there'll be no trace
He'll take us to a better place.

My dearest friends keep up the fight,
Resist the darkness, and do what's right
And when you stand up, walk in the light.

This world is filled with sorrow
There's trouble everywhere
But do not be dismayed
Nor weak and in despair
He knows all that has happened
And what you're going through
You're covered in his love
And he won't let go of you

Speak from your heart and let it shine
And let God's will be done, not thine
So I can see you once again on down the line.

The river is deep, and the river is wide
I'm gonna cross over when I see my ride.
'Cause I got a home on the other side

Speak from your heart and let it shine
And let God's will be done, not thine
So I can see you once again on down the line.
