need lyrics - I'm Going Home

Post by Guest » Tue Jun 06, 2006 8:55 pm

there is an old hymn that goes like this:
Many times in my childhood as we traveled so far
I'd get homesick the futher we'ld rome,
Fathers arm would slip round me and gently he'll say,
My child we're going home,
Going home, yes we're going home,
No theres nothing to hold me here,
I've caught a glimsp of that heavenly home,
Praise God, I'm going Home.

Going Home
By Bill and Gloria Gaither

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."

(Chorus)
Going home, I'm going home,
There's nothing to hold me here;
Well, I've caught a glimpse of that heavenly land,
Praise God, I'm going home.

Now 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.

(Repeat chorus)

Thanks mountainmama, I did not realize that it is a Gaither hymn. I've sang this song for years, to my children and now to my 87 years old mother. She sings "Shall We Gather at the River."
Thanks again

I love that song as well. Our church choir sings that song. It is a wonderful song, one of great blessing and comfort to all those that hear.

It is a very heart-warming hymn. It reminds that inspite of all of the sadness in our world today, Jesus has placed in our hearts the blessed hope that one day he will return and that heaven will be a place of joy and total peace.

God bless everyone

i'm goin' home with Jesus
in the twinkling of an eye
i've got my reservation
for a mansion in the sky
i may not know the moment
or i may not know the day
but i know that i'll be leavin'
when He calls His church away !!!

There is also a second verse to the original "Going Home" song originally requested here:

Verse 2
Well my heart gets so heavy
And I'm longing to see
All my loved ones and friends I have known
But each step draws me nearer to the land of my dreams
Praise God, I'm going Home

Chorus
Going home, I'm going home.
There is nothing to hold me here.
I caught a glimpse of that heavenly land;
Praise God, I am going home.


ALSO... on the last Chorus instead of "I am" you say:

Praise God, we're going home!

that was the song that was playing when my grandpa took his last breath. ]:
it was his favorite and when he was too weak to go to church, everyone that could from his church would go to his house and sing it to him. it was really special and it meant a lot to me. it made him so happy. the cd was playing when he was dying and as soon as that song finished, he passed away.
-sigh-
