Hymn/Song Information

Returning not departing My steps are homeward




Returning, not departing,
My steps are homeward bound;
I quit the land of strangers,
For home on native ground.


Iím leaving only shadows
For what is true and good:
I must not, can not, linger;
I would not, though I could.


This is not deathís dark portaló
Lifeís golden gate to me
Link after link is broken,
And I at last am free.


Jesus, thou wilt receive me,
And welcome me above;
This sunshine, which now fills me,
Is thine own smile of love.
