invites you to join them immediately following the service
for a time of visitation and a light supper at the
Atlantic Golf and Country Club.
Goin' home, goin' home, I'm a goin' home
Quiet like, some still day, I'm just goin' home
It's not far, just close by, through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more
Mother's there, expecting me
Father's waiting too
Lots of folks gathered there
All the friends I knew
Nothin's lost, all is gain
No more fret or pain
No more stumblin' on the way
No more longin' for the day
Goin' to roam no more
Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life just begun
There's no break, There's no end
I'll be living on.
Wide awake, with a smile, going on and on
Goin’ home, goin’ home, I’m a goin’ home
It’s not far, just close by, through an open door
I’ll be goin’ home, I’ll be goin’ home
I’m goin’ home, I’m goin’ home
Lord I’m goin’ home
