'Thought Gettin' Older' Gaither Vocal Band

'Thought Gettin' Older' Gaither Vocal Band

The incredible ensemble of the Gaither Vocal Band perform a live rendition of their upbeat song ‘Thought Gettin’ Older.’


The Gaither Vocal Band is a popular all-male southern gospel ensemble. The band name comes from the founder and leader, Bill Gaither, who has written countless hymns over the decades.

Since 1981, this group has performed hundreds of our favorite worship tunes and beautiful original songs all over the world. Throughout their time, The Gaither Vocal Band has released 29 albums and there is no slowing down anytime soon. And their latest song is all about time passing by so quickly.

“Well, I’d have thought for sure Jesus would have come back by now
I still believe some day I’ll see Him riding that big white horse through the clouds
I believe it even more right now than I did when I was a kid
Still, I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did”

‘Thought Gettin’ Older’ is featured on the Gaither Vocal Band’s new gospel album, ‘Good Things Take Time.’ Group members Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, Todd Suttles, Adam Crabb and Reggie Smith perform some of our favorite Gaither songs as well as brand new worship anthems.

This song is just another in a long line of hits that we’ll continue to sing for years to come. Let these lyrics be a reminder that even as we grow older and things may become harder, we can rest assured that we will all be reunited in Heaven one day.
