A Little Bit Further

1. Oh, I know I’m a little bit older,
Little bit farther on down the trail,
And I’m spending more time on my knees, friend, as I go,
For I’m praying a little longer,
For I know that over there,
There’s a place that’s waiting for the ones that go.
2. So I’m moving on t’ward heaven,
Praying as I go,
And I’m asking Him to please hold my hand,
For I’m down the trail a little bit farther,
A little bit nearer home,
I can look up ahead and there’s not far to go.
I’m a little farther on my journey,
A little farther down the trail,
I’m nearer home that I was yesterday,
I can see the home fires burning,
The lights of that city,
I’m nearer home that I was the day before.
