2. 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 feel lost
For I will be the first one that you 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.
3. In this life we labored hard to earn our meager fare
It's brought us trembling hands and failing eyes.
I'll just rest here on the shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come and we'll see Paradise.
