At Home With Jesus

Written by Elton Smith, Morgan Smith and Linda Edge

My daughter, Morgan and I wrote the first verse and the chorus, then Linda helped out with the second verse. The drawing of Heaven was done by Veronica with colored pencils and scanned. You can reach Veronica's other page by clicking on the picture. Many thanks to Elizabeth and John Tolson for help with the music score. - Elton January 17, 1998

Lyrics

Artwork by Morgan Smith

(Short Introduction)

(Verse 1)
I talk to Jesus every day
He always listens when I pray
I know he loves me
'cause he died to set me free
I tell my friends about his love
about the home we'll share above
Our home with Jesus through all eternity

(Chorus)
At home with Jesus is where I'm going to be
Up in the mansions gold and bright
He'll make everything so right
At home with Jesus through all eternity
At home with Jesus is where I'm going to be

(Verse 2)
I talk to Jesus every day
He listens when I kneel and pray
I know he's with me
When I lay me down to sleep
Please come and hear about his love
About the home we'll share above
Our home with Jesus through all eternity

(Repeat Chorus)
At home with Jesus is where I'm going to be
Up in the mansions gold and bright
He'll make everything so right
At home with Jesus through all eternity
At home with Jesus is where I'm going to be

At home with Jesus is where I'm going to be
Up in the mansions gold and bright
He'll make everything so right
At home with Jesus through all eternity
At home with Jesus is where I'm going to be

Elaine Benjamin, Saipan2008-01-30I needed a song for a special boy named Kyle and your song was just the one. My nephew Kyle was only four years old when God called him home. This is a beautiful song to celebrate Kyle's new life on the day we lay him to rest. Thank you for sharing your music.

AURORA AVILA2007-06-23I was searching for ideas to go with the Bible lessons for our Vacation Bible School. This song is perfect for our lesson on Jesus' promises.

Thank you so much.
