Sunday Morning Mountain Gospel Music 32

Lord, I'm Ready to Go Home
Sung by the The Louvin Brothers , Ira & Charlie Loudermilk
In memory of Robby Erik Smiddy  6/11/1982 - 4/5/2015



 
Lord, I'm Ready to Go Home

Through the valleys of this life I have wandered
And I've worked for Jesus all along the way
But now I see the sun for me is setting
I have reached the ending of my way

Lord, I've been faithful in the service You have given
And the harvest of the fields, Lord, I have done
But now my steps are growing weary
Lord, I'm waiting, I'm ready to go home

Looking back upon the life I've lived for Jesus
I can see how He has helped me all the way
And the tears I've shed just helped to keep me humble
And each burden only taught me how to pray

Lord, I've been faithful in the service You have given
And the harvest of the fields, Lord, I have done
But now my steps are growing weary
Lord, I'm waiting, I'm ready to go home

Though I hate to leave so many friends behind me
And the parting of our ways will touch my heart
But I'll wait for them inside the gates of heaven
Where the children of God will never part

Lord, I've been faithful in the service You have given
And the harvest of the fields, Lord, I have done
But now my steps are growing weary
Lord, I'm waiting, I'm ready to go home
