"I don't need no woman to kiss me
And I don't need no man to stand by my side
I don't need to slake my thirst with whiskey
Don't need to shuffle cards to pass the time
'Cause the stars are bright and silvery
And with the dry ache of a lone coyote's whine
My Savior's calling and I'm listening
Time to saddle up my pony and ride

'Cause heaven is waiting
Just past the horizon
Just over the mesas
Across the great divide
And faith is blazing
This trail that I ride on up this mountain
I'm prayin' I have the strength to climb

I ain't looking for no seven golden cities
But I know there's a fortune somewhere to find
There's a peace that I hear whisperin' through the pinyons
And a love that's taller than the ponderosa pines

And heaven is waiting
Just past the horizon
Just over the mesas
Across the great divide
And faith is blazing
This trail that I ride on up this mountain
I'm prayin' I have the strength to climb

So don't ask for no lengthy explanation
When there ain't no reason quite wild enough
No words could be as tender
It's greater than the fears that we imagine
More than the warmth that we remember
It's always just beyond the pass
And I must go

'Cause heaven is waiting
Just past the horizon
Just over the mesas
Across the great divide
And faith is blazing
This trail that I ride on up this mountain
I'm prayin' I have the strength to climb

Oh heaven is waiting
Oh heaven is waiting
Heaven is waiting"

    Like a father who is waiting for his children to come home, so is god waiting in heaven for his own.
