Far Side Banks Of Jordan Lyrics - Alison Krauss

Review The Song (4)



I believe my steps are growing wearier each day
Still I've got a journey on my mind
Lures 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 I've a feeling it will be
When it comes your time to travel likewise don't you 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 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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

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

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

Reminds me of Mom and Dad | Reviewer: Alex | 12/19/13

I can remember as a boy listening to my dad pick his guitar (that I now play) and he and mom sing this song in such beautiful harmony. Back then I thought them singing and playing together was beautiful - but they've since passed - I'm married now - and what I find even more beautiful is that my wife and I will some day reunite with them above - with the blessed assurance of salvation. Amen. It brings a tear of joy every time I hear this song. I can think of only one love greater... Thank you.

A Glorious Reunion | Reviewer: Larry A | 8/2/12

Speaks clearly of Heaven! My Dad went 1st, then my Mom - I'm sure they're both there, and the words fit perfectly their reunion! I remain (along with my children, my present wife, my ex-wife, and grandkids). My prayer is of course we'll all be there one day - a glorious reunion - on the Far side banks of Jordon!

Beautiful song | Reviewer: Knut Tonsberg | 7/22/09

This song could not be more beautiful. It is very touching. I will sing it to my wife. I think the picture of her comming against me through the "shallow waters" brings us back to where it all started - and the more I listen to it, the more sure I am I love her and will hold her hand before the first of us will cross the river Jordan.
