"I'm Goin' Home"

By: Ron Hamilton
***
I Am tired of the pleasures this old world can afford,
How I thirst for the fountain, that springs forth from the Lord.
Though my sin comes to haunt me, never more shall I roam.
O my soul is worn and weary, I'm goin' home.
***
I'm goin' home...I'm goin' home.
O, my soul is worn and weary, I'm goin' home.
***
I will bow to the savior, and repent of my sin.
He will bear every burden, and He'll cleanse me within.
I will praise Him forever, never more shall I roam.
O my soul is worn and weary, I'm goin' home.
***
I'm goin' home...I'm goin' home.
O, my soul is worn and weary, I'm goin' home.

I thought of this song tonight for a threefold reason. The first reason is for the most immediate reason, at least it could be the most immediate, that all depends on what the Lord decides...anyway...in a little less than two weeks my ship will be home from it's deployment. I can't wait to be back in my bed in my room on base, and to be able to be back at my church with my church family. I have missed them so much since I left!
***
The second reason is because in a little more than a month I will be home, in the states that is! I can't wait to see my family, to see Hannah, and everyone back there. By the time I go home it will have been a year since I saw them all back there! I can't wait, it is going to be awesome.
***
And finally the most important message of all, that I know are the main focus for the words in this song. We are all tired and weary in this life, and we long for the time when we will stand before our Lord and Savior up in heaven and be with Him forever. I long for that day so much...especially when I struggle so much here...I can't wait till I won't feel like I have to worry about anything anymore...I will simply be able to rest in the unfailing love of the Lord, and rest in His arms. What a day that will be...

Yes, that will be a day...At least God gives us comfort before we get to heaven; how else would we survive? He is so good...

Have you ever heard this song? I actually sang a solo for it when I was in Middle School at my church.

Also, did you notice my countdown on the sidebar?
