Home Lyrics
This world is not what it was meant to be
All this pain, all this suffering
There’s a better place waiting for me
In heavenEvery tear will be wiped away
Every sorrow and sin erased
We’ll dance on seas of amazing grace
In heaven

I’m goin’
Home
Where the streets are golden
Every chain is broken
Oh I wanna go
Oh I wanna go
Home
Where every fear is gone
I’m in Your open arms
Where I belong
Home

Lay down my burdens, I lay down my past
I run to Jesus, no turning back
Thank God Almighty, I’ll be free at last
In heaven

Blinded eyes will finally see
The dead will rise on shores of eternity
The trump will sound, the angels will sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah
I am goin’
I’m goin’ home
I’m on my way home
I’m goin’ home

One story about "Home"

  • Amy Hauge says:

    Where do.I start. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. My father passed away June 28th, 2016. I am having a very hard time with it. This song reminds that my daddy went home, where streets are golden, every chain is broken. He is in a safe place.

    My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer, mesothelioma. They gave my dad 4-6 months as he was stage 4, we had 2 weeks with my dad. We did home hospice and I wouldn’t of had it any other way. We took care of dad. I had to learn to “let go” of my dad to the Lord. It was the most humbling experience yet very hard to “let go”. During my time with my dad, I was woth him when he asked the Lord for forgiveness, I prayed with my dad asking the Lord to hear my dad’s cry out and accept his forgiveness. Never have done that before, so it was a wonderful heartfelt experience for me.

    I had the opportunity to thank my dad for all he’s done: walking me down the aisle (1 1/2yr before he passed), provided for me and JUST being my dad, he said “you’re welcome”. That was the Saturday before he passed and really the last words I heard (the actual last words on his final day was “no, no, no”, I was trying to sit him up).

    I miss my dad so much. I say hi, good morning and good night to my dad everyday. We planted a tree in my yard in honor of my dad. He had the opportunity to see a picture and the tree, he said “ooh that’s nice”

    Now I worry about my mom. She’s lonely, empty, sad. There is a big void. I pray everyday for my mom, for coping, comfort. My mom really wants to ve with her husband.

    So this song honestly makes me cry, melt, honor and belt out signing, reminds me of the process we as a family experienced with my dad “going home “, wish I heard the song back last year but thankful I hear it now.

    Thanks for listen

    Amy Hauge
