I have included the words to my song followed by an ever expanding list of links for your pleasure.

FAR SIDE BANKS OF JORDAN

I’ll admit my steps are growing wearier each day.
I’ve got a certain journey on my mind.
Lures of this old world have ceased to make me want to stay.
My one regret is leaving you behind.

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 see.

CHORUS:

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

Through this life we’ve labored long to earn our meager way.
It’s brought us trembling hands and failing eyes;
So I’ll just rest there on that shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come. Then we’ll see Paradise.

REPEAT CHORUS:
