The Far Side Banks Of The Jordan

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
I believe my steps are growing wearier each day
Got another 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

June:
But if it proves to be His will that I am first to cross
And somehow I’ve a feeling it will be
When it comes your time to travel likewise don’t feel lost
For I will be the first one that you’ll see

Both:
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 a shout
And come running through the shallow water reaching for your hand

Johnny: Through this life we labor hard to earn our meager fare
It’s brought us trembling hands and failing eyes
June: So I’ll just rest here on the shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come and then we’ll see paradise

Both:
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 a shout
And come running through the shallow water reaching for your hand
