I Can’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore

I Can’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore 

This world is not my home I’m just a passing through
My treasures and my hopes are all beyond the blue
Where many friends and kindred have gone on before
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Over in glory land there is no dying there
The saints are shouting victory there’s singing everywhere
I hear the voice of them that I have heard before
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Oh lord you know I have no friend like you
If heaven’s not my home oh lord what would I do
Angel’s beckon me to heaven’s open door
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Heaven’s expecting me that’s one I know
I fixed it up with Jesus a long time ago
He will take me through though I am weak and poor
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Oh I have a loving mother over in glory land
I don’t expect to stop until I shake her hand
She’s gone on before just waiting at heaven’s door
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

This is one of the songs that was sung at my mom’s funeral and I was reminded of it as I spent some time with the Lord this morning. There is a greater home that awaits those who have trusted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. For here on earth, I am just passing through and I know that someday I will also say that I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

    Marvelous to get the words to that song. Some of it is a little different, as I remember, being 79 and hearing my mother sing that song. The Lord brought it to my mind this morning when I sat down to have my time with the Lord. Thanks for sharing it. I feel you must be a sister in the Lord. Lois

    Perhaps there are a few different ‘versions’ of the song…but it does have some great words, doesn’t it and rings very true indeed?! Yes! I am indeed a sister in our Savior Jesus Christ. Thanks for commenting!
