Bill Monroe – Waiting At The Gate lyrics

I'm waiting at the gate looking for my ride
Soon to take me to my home on high
Angel bands a coming From the other side
I don't want to be late I'm waiting at the gate
I can hear the thunder the time's at hand
Joybells are ringing in the promised land
Jesus is a coming my soul to take
Yes my Lord sees me waiting at the gate
I'm a' leaving the world no more to do
All of my work on earth is through
I've fought the fight I've kept the faith
Well I'm ready to go I'm waiting at the gate
