(For Ryan)


     A young man whom I greatly love and respect just called, asking for prayer regarding the passing of his beloved grandfather.  You may recall this song from last year, written when another friend's loved one went to be the with the Lord. 

Homeward, My child, it is time to go.
I am with you just as promised, you'll journey not alone.
I have been this way we travel, oh see the path I've traced.
Those sparkles all along the way are glimmers of My grace...
Homeward, My child.

Angels travel with us, they marvel at the scene
of yet another spirit My mercy has redeemed.
And Someone waits to greet you, a Father all sublime,
Oh I have not words to tell you of the wonder you'll soon find...
Homeward, My child.

So homeward, child, we venture, united in My love.
I have waited for this moment, when yonder up above,
you'll see things unimagined, you'll look upon your God,
we'll forever be together because this path we've trod...
Homeward, My child,
Homeward, My child,

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear not evil.  For Thou art with me."
(Psalm 23:4)

Weekly Memory Verse

(Deuteronomy 29:29)
