    Going home, going                 home,

    Descending Figure 1 (2)    Am7   D7/F#
    I'm just going                     home.

    Quiet-like, slip away

    Am7   D7/F#   C/G   G
    I'll be going      home.


    C (2)            D7/F#     C
    It's not far, just close by;

     Am7  Bm7    Cma7 (2)
    Jesus   is the Door;

    Am7 (2)           Bm7   Em
    Work all done, laid   aside,

     C            Bm7       Cadd9  D/F#
    Fear and grief no more.


      G              Bm/F#   G/F     C/E
    Friends are there,    waiting now.

    Descending Figure 1 (2)    Am7   D7/F#
    He is waiting,                     too.

     G            G/F#  Em      B7
    See His smile!    See His hand!

    Am      D7/F#      G (2)
    He will lead me through.


    G (2½)            D7sus4/G (½)  G

    Morning Star lights the        way;

    Descending Figure 1 (2)    Am7   D7/F#
    Restless dream all              done;

      G (2)                  B7       C
    Shadows gone, break of day,

    Am7      D7/F#   C/G   G
    Life has just     begun.


    C (2)           D7/F#    C

    Every tear wiped    away,

    Am7      Bm7       Cma7 (2)
    Pain and sickness gone;

    Am7 (2)         Bm7       Em
    Wide awake there with Him!

    C               Bm7    Cadd9  D/F#
    Peace goes on and on!


      G       Bm/F#   G/F   C/E
    Going home,      going home,

    Descending Figure 1 (2)    Am7   D7/F#
    I'll be going                        home.

    G            G/F#  Em        B7
    See the Light!    See the Sun!

    Am        D7/F#      G (2)
    I'm just going         home.
