They say that heavens pretty,
and living here is too.
But if they said that I would have to choose between the two.
I'd go home,
going home,
where I belong.
And sometimes when I'm dreaming,
it comes as no surprise.
That if you look and see the homesick feeling in my eyes.
I'm going home,
going home,
where I belong.
While I'm here I'll serve him gladly,
and sing him all my songs.
I'm here,
but not for long.
And when I'm feeling lonely,
and when I'm feeling blue.
It's such a joy to know that I am only passing through.
I'm headed home,
going home,
where I belong.
And one day I'll be sleeping,
when death knocks on my door.
And I'll awake and find that I'm not homesick anymore.
I'll be home,
going home,
where I belong.
hummmm

    This has always been a great song and getting on in my years it means more all the time. I've moved to my birth place from a long distance to be closer to home where I'll rest.

    I have been looking for the origin of this song since I was taught to sing this song to present at FBBC & S' a sacred song competition in years gone by, I thank you for posting this song with the Artist J. B Thomas and song writers TERRY, PAT. Thank you so much; may God bless you!

    This song correlates with the apostle paul's thoughts on the fact that, as believers in jesus, that to be in heaven, we will finally and ultimately be at home with our savior jesus christ. But until then, as long as we are still in this life he has blessed us with, that we will serve him by singing his praises and telling others the good news until he brings us home, which won't be long, since this life is but a vapor compared to eternity. Oh, to see his face... :) if you have not asked him to be your savior, do it now.
