I love this hymn. The first time I heard it was for my dad's funeral several years ago. A young welsh boy named Andrew Johnston did an excellent rendition on his debut album One Voice in 2008.
best wishes

there's another verse to that song that we sing...

Now my heart gets so heavey as I'm longing to see,
All my loved ones and friends I have known;
But each step draws me nearer to that land of my dream,
Praise God, I am going home.

Going Home

Many times in my childhood when we'd traveled so far,
By nightfall how weary I'd grow;
Father's arms would slip 'round me,
So gently he'd say,
"My child, we're going home."

Going home, oh, I'm going home,
There's nothing to hold me here;
For I've caught a glimpse of that heavenly land,
And now, I'm going home.

The twilight is fading and the day soon shall end;
I get homesick the farther I roam;
But my Father has led me each step of the way,
And now we're going home.

I chose this song for my Mom's funeral two years ago, and it was very comforting to my family. I heard it being played on bagpipes two days ago to honour some Canadian soildiers killed in Afganistan as their remains were being returned to Canadian soil. Very moving when played on the pipes.

I have the words to Going Home but I can't find an accompaniment trax for the song. I prefer the words by Fisher and Ken Bible. If anyone has a site where I can get the accompaniment please post it . Thanks!!

As the links to Youtube are frequently made down, I actualize here the link to the beautiful Libera's version of Going Home. :)


Video taken from their 2007 concert in the Netherlands, available on CD and DVD.

And here is the lyrics sung by Libera

Going home going home
I am going home
Quiet like, some still day
I am going home

It's not far, just close by,
through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
never fear no more

Mother's there expecting me
Father's waiting too
Lots of faces gathered there
All the friends I knew

I'm just going home

No more fear No more pain
No more stumbling by the way
No more longing for the day
Going to run no more

Morning star lights the way
Restless dreams all gone
Shadows gone, break of day
real life has begun

There's no break, there's no end
Just living on
Wide awake, with a smile
going on and on

Going home Going home
I am going home
shadows gone break of day
real life has begun

I'm just going home

I believe the woman who sang Going Home in The Snake Pit was Betsy Drake, at that time she was the wife of Gene Kelly.
