Trying To Get A Glimpse Lyrics

Words and Music by: James Weatherington, Suzanne Jennings

"Jim "Big Chief" Weatherington of the legendary Statesmen wrote this song, but Suzanne Jennings, Bill and Gloria Gaither's daughter, wrote a new bridge. The Cathedrals recorded the song on our last CD, Faithful, but Bill Gaither told me we didn't get enough mileage out of it since the group retired shortly after its release. We brought it back with our Sig Sound touch, and Bill was right...there is a bunch of juice left in this puppy." - (Ernie Haase)

Standing by the river, Gazing cross the raging tide
Standing by the river, trying to get a glimpse
Of whats over on the other side, other side.

Standing on the banks of the river
Looking beyond, looking beyond (The river, Ooh)
Standing on the banks of the river
Looking for a home, Looking for a home (To Heaven, Ahh)
Just to get a glimpse of my Jesus
And that home up there on high
Looking for the light of my Savior
Up in the sky

(Repeat Chorus)

Standing there waiting for the boat man
Ready to go, ready to go (To heaven , Ooh)
Standing there waiting for the boatman
On that shore, On that shore (Of Jordan, Ahh)
Just to get a glimpse of that city
And behold my Savior there
Then I"ll know forever I'll be In my Saviors care.

Well I was standing on the banks
When I saw that ol ship take my momma home
I was standing on the banks when daddy
Crossed the river and left me all alone
Now I'm standing on the banks
Just waiting for my ride to heavens golden shore
And I'm, trying to get a glimpse of what's over on the other side

(Repeat Chorus)

Faith Music, Pilot Point Music / SESAC, ASCAP
