|I'm Only Going Home
|It could be a day, just like today,
When You come to take me away.
My heart could skip a beat or two,
Then, suddenly, I'd be with You.
I've looked for You, dear Lord, so long.
And, I've sung about You in my song.
But this one thing I surely know;
Each year, each day, I older grow.
Life's uncertain, that's one thing for sure.
Things don't ever stay the way they were.
In just a moment, it could mean
I'd leave this world; my soul set free.
I've always thought You'd come again.
I still believe it's true, just as You say.
But, if You call before that day,
I'll take Your hand. You'll lead the way.
Please, don't you cry at my parting.
I've lived my lifetime for this.
Don't you cry at my parting.
At last, the nail prints in His hands I'll kiss!
With eyes beholding Jesus
And feet that walk the streets of Gold,
I won't be needing sorrow.
I'm only Going Home!
