The Home Coming

Written by: Lori Lucas McClure

I can see a city growing nearer!

A brilliant glowing light becoming clearer

A white stone wall I see and a band of heavenly hosts 

coming down to great me!

A procession of angels, their trumpets to play 

Welcome us all home in perfect harmony! 

Arms out stretched by a golden river 

I’ll soon be there!

All sorrow and tears fade away; 

forgotten memories of yesterday.

A distant voice I hear, “ well done thou good

 and faithful servant!” Enter thou in the joy of 

the Lord!” 

All Heaven  is filled with praise,A as the Father looks on with

eyes full of love, another child comes  home

to take his place beside  Heaven’s Dove
