If You Could See Where I Have Gone

If you could see where I have gone, The beauty of this place, And how it feels to know you’re home, To see the Saviors’ face. To wake in peace and know no fear, just joy beyond compare. While still on earth, you miss me yet, you wouldn’t want me there, If you could see where I have gone. If you could see where I have gone, had made the trip with me, You’d know I didn’t go alone. The Savior came with me. When I awoke, He was by my side, and reached out his hand, Said, “Hurry Child you’re coming home to a grand and glorious land, Don’t worry over those you love, for I’m not just with you, And don’t you know, with you at home, they’ll long to be here too”. If you could see where I have gone, and see what I’ve been shown, You’d never know another tear, or ever feel alone. You’d marvel at the care of God, His hand on every life, And realize he really cares, and bears with us each strife, And that he weeps when one is lost. His heart is filled with pain, But oh! the joy when one comes home, a child is home again. If you could see where I have gone, could stay awhile with me, Could share the things that God has made, to grace eternity. But no, you could never leave, once Heavens’ joy you’d known, You couldn’t beat to walk earth’s paths, once Heaven was your home. If you could see where I have gone, you’d know we’ll meet someday, And though I’m parted from you now, that I am just away. So, thank you family, thank you friends, for living for the Lord, For teaching me to love Him, to trust Him and His word, And now, that I’m at home with Him. secure in every way, I’m waiting here at Heaven’s door, to greet you some sweet day.
