Welcome Home

By Larry Pasley


God sent His Son for you to die;

So you could live with Him on high.

He wants you with Him by and by;

And longs your coming with a sigh.

Jesus came and suffered for you;

And all He asked for you to do;

Was just to simply, love Him too;

And then His holy will pursue.

So think how much for you He’s done;

In sending down his only son;

Because He’s like no other one;

He vict’ry o’er the grave has won.

How disappointed He will be;

If at the gate He does not see;

The one to which He gave the key;

And said please come and live with me.

So since your flesh returns to loam;

And on this earth you cease to roam;

Think of heaven and that fair dome;

And long to hear that “Welcome Home.”
