Quincy Lyr Req: I'm Ready to Go Home (5) Lyr Add: GREEN PASTURES * LORD I'M READY TO GO HOM 20 May 01


GREEN PASTURES - Traditional

1. Troubles and trials often betray those
On in the weary body to stray
But we shall walk beside the still waters
With the Good Shepherd leading The Way.

CHO: Going up home to live in green pastures
Where we shall live and die never more
Even the Lord will be in that number
When we have reach that Heavenly Shore.

2. Those who have strayed were sought by The Master
He who once gave His life for the sheep
Out on the mountain still He is searching
Bringing them in forever to keep. CHO.

3. We will not heed the voice of the stranger
For he would lead us all to despair
Following on with Jesus our savior
We shall all reach that country so fair. CHO.

LORD I'M READY TO GO HOME - Hazel Houser

1. Through the valley of this life I have wandered
And I worked for Jesus all along the way
But now I see the sun for me is setting
I have reached the ending of my way.

CHO: Lord I've been faithful in the service you have given
And the harvest of the fields Lord I have done
But now my steps are growing weary
Lord I'm ready I'm ready to go home.

2. Looking back upon the life I've lived for Jesus
I can see how he has helped me all the way
And the tears I shed just help to keep me amble
And each burden only taught me how to pray. CHO.

3. Though I hate to leave so many friends behind me
And the parting of our ways will touch my heart
But I'll wait for them inside the gates of heaven
Where the children of God will never part. CHO.

Lord I'm ready I'm ready to go home.

DARKEST HOUR

The sun is slowly sinkin'
The day's almost gone
Still darkness falls around us
And we must journey on.

The sun is slowly sinkin'
The narrow way leads home
Lay down your soul at Jesus' feet
The darkest hour is just before dawn

Like a shepherd out on the mountain
A-watchin' the sheep down below
He's coming back to claim us
Will you be ready to go?

The darkest hour is just before dawn
The narrow way leads home
Lay down your soul
Let Jesus in
The darkest hour is just before dawn
The darkest hour is just before dawn.

Best wishes, Yvonne
