Home with You Lyrics:

My God I come to you,
Yet I feel so uncertain.
But you say I'm home with you,
In your arms, in your heart, in your love.
My soul aches for you,
My heart breaks in two every day I'm not here with you,
In your arms, in your heart, in your love.
So I close my eyes and pray,
And I hear the angels say...
It's time to trust in me,
Now let your heart be free.

REFRAIN: Love, joy, welcome;
Peace, hope, soul freedom.
Love, love,
Joy, feel the joy,
Welcome; yes, His arms are open wide;
Peace, peace,
Hope, hope for all,
Soul freedom, freedom.

BRIDGE: Time for rejuvenation, let us be renewed.
Time for celebration, sing of gratitude.
Feel the resurrection, be the light to the world.
Know the jubilation, hear the voice of God.

EXTENDED REFRAIN: Love, He has everlasting love,
Joy, joy as only known above,
Welcome; yes, His arms are open wide to everyone.
Peace, peace that passes understanding,
Hope, hope for all the years to come,
Soul freedom, when I'm in your arms I'm home with you.

Repeat EXTENDED REFRAIN

Repeat BRIDGE

Repeat REFRAIN

Yes I'm home with you!
