I'm Only Going Home (Song) ~ Joan Clifton Costner


Here is a song I wrote a very long time ago….I still like it.
 It doesn't make a bad poem.

I'm Only Going Home
4/4

It could be a day just like today,
When You come to take this child away -
My heart could skip a beat or two
And suddenly I’d be with You -
And it could be a day just like today.

Chorus:
BUT DON'T YOU CRY AT MY PARTING,
I'VE LIVED MY LIFETIME FOR THIS;
DON'T YOU CRY AT MY PARTING
AT LAST THE NAIL PRINTS IN HIS HANDS I'LL KISS,
WITH EYES BEHOLDING JESUS,
AND FEET THAT WALK THE STREETS OF GOLD
I WON'T BE NEEDING SORROW -
I'M ONLY GOING HOME!

I've looked for You to come, dear Lord, so long,
And I've sung about You in my song,
But this one thing I surely know
Each year - each day - I older grow
And it could be a day just like today.

Chorus
Life’s uncertain, that’s one thing for sure
Things don't ever stay the way they were -
Just a moment - it could mean
I'd leave this world, my soul set free,
And it could be a day just like today!

Chorus
I've always thought You'd come again someday...
I still believe it’s true just as You say,
But if You call before that day
I'll take Your hand, You'll lead the way
And it could be a day just like today!

Last Chorus:
But don't you cry at my parting,
I've lived my lifetime for this,
Don't you cry at my parting -
At last the nail prints in His hands I'll kiss!
With eyes beholding Jesus
And feet that walk the streets of Gold
I won't be needing sorrow-
I'm only Going Home!
Tag:(ret.)
No, I won't need your sorrow any more....
I'm only... going .....Home....
Just going Home...

Streams of Living Water ~ Joan Clifton Costner


Streams of Living Water

Streams of Living water shall
Fill the pens of God's authors.
Yielded hearts shall be
Replenished and supplied..

Those whose deep
Desire is Jesus shall
Know He is Alive!

The arms are steady,
The will is yielded,
The heart is quite in place!

Write on, work on,
Thank God for sleeplessness.
When all is quiet and
He can speak to your heart!

Be grateful, Be thankful;
Always watching, always
Listening, always loving.

"Behold, I come quickly."

My Thanks ~ Joan Clifton Costner





My Thanks

Across the seas, in lands beyond,
The saints and martyrs glow.
How can I stand before your face
With those who suffered so?
When I've forgotten e'en to pray
For them for days ~~ for weeks;
And I have suffered nothing
For the kingdom that I seek.
What joy 'twould be to clasp the hand
Of one who stood for You;
Nor ere denied one single word
Of Yours they knew 'twas true;
But can my eyes e'er look in theirs?
(For they have given all) ~~
And I, who could, can scarcely seem
To speak Your name at all.
Oh, God! I can but wonder ~~
For I love those saints so true, ~~
I've never suffered for Your sake,
But, Lord, I love You too.
Help me, gracious Lord, to do
And say the things I should;
To stand for right and ne'er deny
One portion of Thy word.
One glorious day we'll stand before
Thy throne and see Thy face;
Hand in hand we'll marvel at
The wonder of Your grace.
Thank You, Lord, that time will be
Measured never more;
And I can take eternity
To thank those I adore!
