Soo sorry for the loss of my good friend, Bob. He was a good man and friend. His family should know that he loved them and was very proud of all of them. We were friends for a short while, but I was privileged to have known him. Rest In Peace, BOB.... Carolyn E. Payne

Going Home

Music -
Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 9
(popularly known as the New World Symphony), 1893
(08 Sept 1841 – 01 May 1904)

 Lyrics added by Dvořák's pupil, William Arms Fisher

Going home, going home
I'm just going home
Quiet light, some still day
I'm just going 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 folk gathered there
All the friends I knew
All the friends I knew
I'm going home
Nothing's lost, all's gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more
Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life begun
There's no break, there's no end
Just a living on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on
Going home, going home
I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
I am going home
I'm just going home
Going home, going home
