Hi Lana,
I have two songs dont know which one might be it but here goes :)

I'll be looking for you
1. If I get there before you do, I'll be looking for you
For I'll just wait till the Lord calls me home.
We've had victory and tears, we've been blessed with many years,
Now we'll spend eternity with our Lord.
Chorus:
Then we'll walk hand in hand, throughtout the Promised Land,
Down the streets made of purest of gold.
I'm so glad we made the choice, Jesus Christ is still the Lord,
Signed with love, I'll be looking for you.
2. Heaven's surely worth the wait, just to see inside the gate,
And to walk on the streets of purest gold.
Just to see the One I know who has washed me white as snow,
I've got a longing now to go, don't you?????
Chorus:
Then we'll walk hand in hand throughtout the Promised Land,
Down the streets made of purest of gold.
I'm so glad we made the choice, Jesus Christ is still the Lord,
Signed with love, I'll be waiting for you.......

hope this is the right one will post the other next , take care

the second one is titled:
Look for me (I'll be there)
Through this world of pain and sorrow
I have traveled night and day
But my life will soon be over
And I must jour-(and I must jour-) ney on my way

Oh look for me (lookk for me ) for I'll be there ( yes I'll be there )
Just look for me (just lok for me) for I'll be there
When you reach the gates of heaven
Look for me (look for me) for I'll be there ( yes I'll be there )

I'm goin to a land of pleasure
Where no one ever knows a care
And when you reach the Gates of Heaven
Look for me ( look for me ) for I'll be there (yes I'll be there)

Oh look for me(look for me) for I'll be there (yes I'll be there)
Just look for me (just look for me) for I'll be there
When you reach the gates of Heaven
Look for me (look for me) for I'll be there (yes I'll be there)

God bless you and hope that these might have been what you was lookin for

Away far beyond Jordan
We'll meet in that land
O won't it be grand
Away far beyond Jordan
We'll meet in that beautiful land.

If you get there before I do
Look out for me for I'm coming too
Away far beyond Jordan
We'll meet in that beautiful land.

I have been searching the internet all day trying to find a copy of his song for my Grandad's funeral. Could anyone please tell whreto get a copy of this?

Many thanks
Ross

How strange I used to go a very old lady's house - Miss Monday's Bible Club and we used to sing this hymn. The lyrics come to me when I least expect them, childhood memories!

The line "If you get there before I do, look out for me cause I'm coming too" came into my head totally out of the blue. It must be 50 years since I sung it last and now, thanks to the wonder of the internet, I've found the rest of the words. I had even remembered the tune but not all the words. While watching a film called Shadrach, it was great to hear another old hymn I hadn't heard since childhood, Farther along, we'll know all about it"

seems like theres variations to this song, im looking for it too.

The only lyrics I can remember are
, " away, away over Jordan .....
if you get there before I do,
look out for me, cause Im coming too,
away, away over Jordan,
we'll meet on that beautiful shore.
.
cant find it anywhere on google.I think ill go to our local church and look up whoever of our old people are left and see if they remember.

I'm looking for the piano music for the song "I'll be looking for you". Shirleynstan posted the lyrics and I've heard it sung but can not find the music for it. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Well I looked over Jordan and what did I see. Coming for to carry me home. A band of angels coming after me. Coming for to carry me home.
Chorus
Swing low sweet chariot. Coming for to carry me home. Swing Low sweet chariot. coming for to carry me home.
2
If you get there before I do. Coming for to carry me home. Tell all my friends I'm coming home too. Coming for to carry me home.
3.
Well I'm sometimes up and I'm sometimes down. Coming for to carry me home. But still my soul is heaven bound coming for to carry me home.
