I'm trying to locate a hymn with the words "i'm not getting older, I'm just getting closer to home". These may not be the actual words but words very similar. I think it is fairly old but don't know who wrote it or sang it. Thank you for any help you can give.

Here they are God Bless you



Saw my friend the other day and what I saw took me by surprise,
Several years had made a change I saw a tired look in his eyes;
I said I can't help but wonder, where has your young life gone.
He said I'm not getting older I'm just getting closer to home.

No I'm not getting older I'm just getting closer to home oh Lord.
How can you say I'm looking old, my soul's gonna live on and on.
And this body that you see will take on immortality and I'll be gone.
No I'm not getting older I'm just getting closer to home.

You see this wrinkles on my face represent a burden for the Lord.
And my voice is sounding hoarse from telling folks about the old rugged cross.
I've helped my brother with his load til the strength in back is gone.
But No I'm not getting older, I'm just getting closer to home.

No I'm not getting older I'm just getting closer to home oh Lord.
How can you say I'm looking old, my soul's gonna live on and on.
And this body that you see will take on immortality and I'll be gone.
No I'm not getting older I'm just getting closer to home.

No I'm not getting older I'm just getting closer to home.

I heard it sung by the Van Houtens at our church years ago & love this song. The tape I had of it broke & I can't seem to find them anywhere on the web. They may have passed on by now. Don't know if they wrote the song or not but I thought they had. Anyway, if anyone has a tape of it or knows where I can get it, please let me know.
