B.J. Thomas – Home Where I Belong lyrics

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.

    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.

    This song makes me so close to Jesus. I play it over and over while I'm mowing, and I get so emotional when I hear about what's waiting for me on the other side. If everyone would just take time to let God talk to them, I know that this song will touch their heart. Especially if they have loved ones there. I want to see jesus, and my only child, my mother and my sister there. Never to part agin. We are just passing through this side. The REAL SIDE IS AWATING, for us who made Jesus, Lord of their life. Praise God
