Im going home (just hank and his guitar circa 1950)
When my work here is oer
And trials come no more
On that great day Im going homec
To live forever more, just oer on heavens shore
When my life here is oer Im going home


Im going home, Im going home
When my life here is oer Im going home
Wont it be so sweet, to rest at jesus feet
When my life here is oer Im going home

Im travelling in the light
And my way is clear and bright
Some glad day Im going home
Heading for the pearly gates for there my savior waits
When my life here is oer Im going home

As I travel down lifes road
So heavy is my load
But some glad day Im going home
Ill meet my loved ones there, in that land so bright and fair
When my life here is oer Im going home
