God's Heavenly Home, Jesus wants us to go to the sinners.
by Samuel Williams
(Gladstone Or.97027 America)
Oh I came to listen to the songs she sung
and it brought back old feelings of when I was young
she sang about a love that she once had
It made me laugh, then it turned so sad
Oh she strummed and strummed on her guitar
I could see that she is a rising star
but I’ll never forget her old gospel song
About a place that’s called God’s Heavenly Home
The good Lord must have wanted me here today
As He knows what Sammy needs to make things okay
My eyes opened wide as she sang another one
about a man scared and on the run
I’ve heard things happen like this before,
now here it is knocking on my front door
Lord knows I've been running for much too long
Time to rid my sins for God’s Heavenly Home
I could see her show was to end for us,
So I said please sing What a friend we have in Jesus,
And yes her words came flowing back to me,
of a time in childhood being free.
I got up to leave, out to my car,
I forgot this place was a local bar.
Guess it don't matter where ever you may roam,
His love is for you in God’s Heavenly Home.
