They sing, Farther along we'll understand.

Oh, how I wish I'd been a holy man,

But I wandered so far astray

Now all I can see is Judgment Day.

I fell on my knees and begged for Your grace,

Then turned around and spat in Your face.

I walked along in my foolish will,

Now I fear that old Boot Hill.

There is a way that seems so right

Even though it leads to death's dark night.

How could I have been so wrong?

All I'm left is a mourning song.

I knew it all. I was so damn smart

When I should have been singing, "My God, How great Thou art!"

It's a long hard road to that field of stone.

Lord, you know I can't face that alone.

God knows I can't undo the things I've done.

I can only cling to the Cross of His Son.

God, please look down below

And save my sin weary soul.

To some here, I don't rate.

Some think I'm just great.

Jesus, you know I know

That my ratings don't count here below.

I'm in trouble, a major jam

If I'm not bought by the Blood of the Lamb.

Jesus, please don't let me go alone

To that dark night and that field of stone.
