What Are We Waiting For?

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The Yeagers are adopting! We would love your support and partnership as we prepare to bring a child home through international adoption.

    You will receive an autographed copy of the CD, plus the following:
    -A download code for an instrumental version of the album
    -A personal thank-you note from David & Brittany
    -A DYB guitar pick (gotta have one of those)

    This version of the CD is priced $5 higher than the standard edition, which means those extra five dollars will go into our adoption fund. There's also an option to "name your price" above the minimum, so please give as you are able - $15, $25, $50, or more. Anything extra will go directly towards the adoption.

    We'll include an additional gift item for donations of $25 or more. But really, we'd be thrilled with any support and encouragement from you, big and small. And if you'd rather just buy a CD, that's totally fine. Just choose the "standard edition" or digital download below.

    Note: this web platform (Bandcamp) charges a percentage of all orders as a processing fee. It's usually well worth it, because Bandcamp is awesome. But if you are considering a large donation (say $100 or more), you may want to contact us directly, so that your funds can be transferred more efficiently.

    Thank you!!

lyrics

Rich man reading from a holy book
Got a puzzled look
He says, “I don’t understand”
A stranger stands in the dusty road
“Can we share the load?”
He says, “let me lend a hand”
An invitation to be baptized and believe
Next thing you know, he’s down on his knees

He says: What are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
We’re right beside the shore
So what are we waiting for?

Poor man fishing in a little boat
Trying to keep afloat
He hasn’t caught a thing
A stranger’s voice is crying out
And there’s something about it
A familiar ring
“Cast your nets out on the other side”
The floodgates open, the Father’s hands provide
The recognition of his blessed risen Lord
Next thing you know - man overboard

He says: What are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
Striving for the shore
So what are we waiting for?

When all that entangles would strangle me
I look to the truth that can set me free
I’m breaking my ties; I’m fixing my eyes

Old man lies in a great big bed
He’s got a heavy head
It’s getting hard to breathe
The weary pilgrim has one river left to ford
His eyes are shining but he can’t see me anymore

He says: What are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
To find the farthest shore

So what are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
Striving for the shore
Arriving at the door
So what are we waiting for?
