Going Home

Fellow pilgrims...we're getting closer...

Many times in my childhood when we'd travel so far
By nightfall how weary I'd grow.
Father's arm would slip 'round me... so gently, he'd say
"My child, we are going home."


Going Home... I am going Home.
There is nothing to hold me here.
I caught a glimpse of that heavenly Land,
And now, I am going Home

Now the twilight is fading... The day soon shall end.
I get homesick the farther I roam;
But my Father has led me each step of the way,
And now, HE will lead me Home.

Tune & lyrics by William Gaither


  1. Dear David...The first time that I ever heard this song sung was by Michael English in the first video that Bill Gaither had made with his friends.
    It is such a moving song.
    Soon after THAT recording the Gatlin Brothers returned to Gospel music singing and that was so nice.
    It is just a wonder that such a work of God[the Bill Gaither and Friends videos] was born in a basement and has been such a blessing ever since to so many people.....from Terry

  2. "even so - come Lord Jesus" ...

    never mind looking for a condo - i will take a heavenly home instead!!!! amen ...
