Homeward Bound (Funeral Song)

(C,*G 4/4 3:43 T080, R000) 2003 Michael Thomas  (1978, v1)

Intro (C,F,repeat...) (Talk): 
In Philipians 1:21 Paul said, "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." 
This song is what the deceased might say to us here today.

Verse 1
1          4                                   1
All of you down there you don't know what your missin'
                    4                       1
The eternal wait of glory is far beyond all comparison
              4                             1
Remember what Paul said, "For me to live is Christ,
       5   4  1     57
And to die is gain"

Chorus
             1                4
I'm homeward bound, Oh what a joy it is
            1                  5
I'm finally seeing Him face to face
57       1           4
I see my Lord, He is waiting for me
               1     5                1
With arms wide open, I can feel His embrace

Verse 2
1           4                     1
Please understand I know that you miss me.
           4                          1
I hear you crying cause you no longer see me
             4                                             1
Take it from someone who knows, keep your heart right with God
               5    4                  1
Cause then someday, . you can come and visit me.
(Ryme: V:A,A,B,A C:A,B,C,B)
