Take me home

*****
I’m a man of a weak spirit
Easily overjoyed but easily broken
I laugh and rejoice
And then I cry and mourn
Nothing seems to last
*****
I’m a child caught in a ruthless world
Ruled by greedy powerful men
Who trade my life for their gain
Who will save me from this world?
How long will you tarry dear Lord!
*****
Some might call this home
But I cannot
I do not belong here, I never did
Not with all the evil, pain and death
No, I crave a better home
*****
I dream of a better future
I long for another world
The world our Lord is preparing
Come Lord Jesus, come
Come and take me home
*****
Take me to the new Jerusalem
Away from this evil world
Take me to everlasting life
Away from this body of death
Take me to your heavenly home
*****
My hope is in your coming
I rejoice to know you will not tarry
In just a very little while
I will see you then and forever
So I live for the day of your coming
