We are sorry to hear of the death of your loved one. After sin and death entered the world, God revealed that it was his purpose that the dead be restored to life by means of a resurrection. Our confidence is not misplaced, for the Bible says of the Almighty: "He is God, not of the dead, but of the living, for they are all living to him" - Luke 20:37, 38.

Going Home

- Words by William Arms Fisher and Ken Bible set to Antonín Dvořák's 9th Symphony, third movement.

Going home, going home,
I'm just going home.
Quiet-like, slip away-
I'll be going home.
It's not far, just close by;
Jesus is the Door;
Work all done, laid aside,
Fear and grief no more.
Friends are there, waiting now.
He is waiting, too.
See His smile! See His hand!
He will lead me through.

Morning Star lights the way;
Restless dream all done;
Shadows gone, break of day,
Life has just begun.
Every tear wiped away,
Pain and sickness gone;
Wide awake there with Him!
Peace goes on and on!
Going home, going home,
I'll be going home.
See the Light! See the Sun!
I'm just going home.
