If I Could Go

By H. L. Gradowith

* If I could go on home to be with Thee Lord
In that bright Land of which I read in Thy Word
I'd gladly fly from this old world tomorrow
And leave behind all of my cares and sorrow.

I've tried to bear the load that's mine, I have Lord,
I've tried to walk as I've been taught in Thy Word,
But sometimes I, despite it all, go astray,
So call for me before I fall -- come today...*

I want to be all I should be for Thee Lord,
I want to learn all I can learn from Thy Word;
And so I'll stay the course while I'm still down here
And until then this is my plea: draw me near... *

Each chance I get I'll point the lost to Thee Lord
I'll tell them that You'll speak to them through Thy
So help me Lord to do the things that please Thee
And keep me safe until Thy Face I can see... *

I'll surely stay down here and work for Thee Lord
And strive to live each day you give by Thy Word
I'll do my part, and then some too, with a smile
And gladly look for Thy return after while. *
