Home Far Away

   Oh lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine
   May I walk in your light everyday
   And when I’ve crossed that deep silent river
   I’ll be happy in that home far away

I wandered away from the straight and the narrow
Driftin’ like a ship lost at sea
No lighthouse to guide my weary footsteps
Til Jesus answered my plea

The lights are bright no longer I’m blinded
From the bondage of sin I’m free
He lifted me up to join salvation
I’ll live on eternally
