Lyrics
you have been gracious
Lord you have been kind
you've given me more than my share
through all of my trials & great tribulations
my burdens you promised to share

all my sins have been duly forgiven
& I have no cause for dispair
take my soul to be with you in Heaven
for Lord I want to go there

take me home, take me home
for Lord I want to go there

soon I will sit on my front porch in Glory
& rock in my new rockin' chair
& gaze at the beauty of Gods' Holy city
there's nothing down here to compare

I'll be happy to meet all my neighbors
whose beautiful stories we'll share
I can't wait to sing with the Angels
oh Lord I want to go there

take me home, take me home
for Lord I want to go there

I want to walk through the streets of that city
that Christ has gone to prepare
there's going to be a great celebration
joy bells will ring in the air

I'll see my loved ones
who've gon on before me
that Jesus has kept in his care
as I wait for those that I leave behind me
oh Lord I want to go there

take me home, take me home
for Lord I want to go there
take me home, take me home
Lord I want to go there
