Patty Loveless & Kris Kristofferson – Far Side Banks Of Jordan lyrics

I believe my steps are growing wearier each day
I've got another journey on my mind
Lures of this old world have ceased to make me wanna stay
My one regret is leaving you behind

If it proves to be His will, that I am first to go
And somehow I've a feeling it will be
Oh, when it comes your times 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 the shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand

Through this life we've labored hard to earn our meager fare
It's brought us trembling hands and failing eyes
So I'll just rest here on this shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come and we'll see paradise

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 the shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand
