FOREVER HOME

In memory of my grandmother, Betty Hughes, and my Bible mentor, Charlie Rice, who both went home to be with Jesus this weekend.  We sorrow at their passing but are filled with joy knowing that they have finally reached their forever home.

He always spoke of Heaven like he'd been there before
He said it was the one thing that he was living for
How bittersweet the moment, the sunset of life
As we all cried and said our last goodbye
And watched him take his flight

Forever home, Living in the arms of Jesus now
Standing in the shadow of the throne he bows
I can almost see him there
No more tears, pain has lost its hold on him
He's more alive than he's ever been
He's arrived, oh I know
He's forever home

Among the saints and angels he's joined the choir of praise
With others who have flown there on the wings of perfect grace
Just like the countless millions, all those who've been redeemed
He casts his crowns down at the Savior's feet
As hallelujahs ring

Forever home, Living in the arms of Jesus now
Standing in the shadow of the throne he bows
I can almost see him there
No more tears, pain has lost its hold on him
He's more alive than he's ever been
He's arrived, oh I know
He's forever home

Forever free from heartache
Forever free from loss
Forever free to live and breathe Because of Calvary's cross
Forever free of living with all these earthly groans
He's living like he's always dreamed in his forever home

Forever home, Living in the arms of Jesus now
Standing in the shadow of the throne he bows
I can almost see him there
No more tears, pain has lost its hold on him
He's more alive than he's ever been
He's arrived, oh I know
He's forever home
