Going Home Lyrics

Going home, going home
I'm just going home
Quiet like, some still day
I'm justa going home

It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
Work all done, cares laid by
Going to fear no more

Momma's there expecting me
Papa's waiting, too
Lots of folk gathered there
All the friends I knew
All the friends I knew
I'm going home....

Nothing's lost, all's gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
Going to roam no more....

Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life begun,Real Life just begun

There's no break, there's no end
Just a living on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on
I'z a Going home,

I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
I'ma going home
I'm just going home.....
Going home, going home

My sistr and I chose this song to be sung at our father's funeral. My eyes still water whenever I hear it or even read the words.

Sang this with our Senior group at church and want it sung at my funeral(whenever that will be). It's very comforting and the words mean so much.

Before my great-grandma died, she asked that this song be sung at her funeral. It was the most perfect song possible to be sung at her funeral. Song made everyone cry. She had been a widow 4 26 years!

After the memorial service of a one of my soldiers, I came across this song. I listened to it many, many times just to feel comforted. I was!

I fell in love with this deeply moving hymn the first time I heard it in King Vidor's 1929 film Hallelujah! I later learnt that the music was from the Largo of Dvorak's New World Symphony(9, opus 95).
