“Going Home” – Bill & Gloria Gaither

Many times in my in child hood when we traveled so far
By nightfall how weary I’d grown
Fathers arms would slip around me and gently he’d say
My child were going home

Going home, I’m going home
There is nothing to hold me here
I’ve caught a glimpse of that Heavenly land
Praise God, I’m going home

Now the twilight is fading, the day soon shall end
Lord, I get homesick, the farther I roam
But the Father has led me each step of the way
And now I’m going home

Going home, I’m going home
There is nothing to hold me here
I’ve caught a glimpse of that Heavenly land
Praise God, I’m going home

 

If you are searching for a song to sing or play in a funeral service, this is it. “Going Home” ups the bar by including a choir that sings the chorus and the background so effectively. The moment you hear the choir singing, you will get the feeling that you are going up to heaven. Although the tempo of the music is slow, yet it conveys the feeling of gladness that one is “going home” and is about to reach his or her heavenly resting place where no more toil and hardships exist. Isn’t this the general desire of people in this war-torn and ravaged world?

 

“Going Home” is actually an album which is a big project made by some of today’s musicians who are firstly, religious people. Some of them are ministers, while some are theologians and others are musicians. All of them are devoted Christians. Bill and Gloria Gaither seem to be the main proponent of this musical project. Apart from being the album’s title, “Going Home” seems to be the album’s signature song. The songs and music in the album are all inspiring and very uplifting. Their lyrics of the songs contain inspiring stories, wise advices, supplicating prayers and expressions of gratitude to God.
