Iím Only Going Home

4/4

It could be a day just like today,

When You come to take this child away -

My heart could skip a beat or two

And suddenly Iíd be with You -

And it could be a day just like today.

Chorus:


BUT DONíT YOU CRY AT MY PARTING,

IíVE LIVED MY LIFETIME FOR THIS;

DONíT YOU CRY AT MY PARTING
,
AT LAST THE NAIL PRINTS IN HIS HANDS IíLL KISS,

WITH EYES BEHOLDING JESUS,

AND FEET THAT WALK THE STREETS OF GOLD

I WONíT BE NEEDING SORROW -

IíM ONLY GOING HOME!


Iíve looked for You to come, dear Lord, so long,

And Iíve sung about You in my song,

But this one thing I surely know

Each year - each day - I older grow

And it could be a day just like today.

Chorus

Lifeís uncertain, thatís one thing for sure

Things donít ever stay the way they were -

Just a moment - it could mean

Iíd leave this world, my soul set free,

And it could be a day just like today!


Iíve always thought Youíd come again someday...

I still believe itís true just as You say,

But if You call before that day

Iíll tak0e Your hand, Youíll lead the way

And it could be a day just like today!


Last Chorus:

But donít you cry at my parting,

Iíve lived my lifetime for this,

Donít you cry at my parting -

At last the nail prints in His hands Iíll kiss!

With eyes beholding Jesus

And feet that walk the streets of Gold

I wonít be needing sorrow-

Iím only Going Home!


Tag:(ret.)

No, I wonít need your sorrow any more....

Iím only... going .....Home....

Just going Home...
