Going Home: Dvorak's 9th Symphony, Third Movement

The hymn "Going Home", can be set to the music of Dvorak'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. 

Words are by William Arms Fisher and Ken Bible.
