Going Home Lyrics

Going home, going home
I'm just going home
Quiet like, some still day
I'm just 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
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more....

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

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

Going home, Going Home
I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
I'm a going home
I'm just going home.....
Going home, going home
[Repeat]

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!

We are going to sing this song in chorus. I bet if I were to actually think about the people I have lost, this song would make me cry.
