Going Home For Christmas

Her house was where the family gathered every Christmas Eve
A feast was set on the table and gifts were placed beneath the tree
Everything was picture perfect, Grandpa would laugh and say
"That woman spends the whole year getting ready for this day."

One year the leaves began to fall and her health began to fade
We moved her to a place where they could watch her night and day
But she kept making plans for Christmas from her little room
She told everyone, "I値l miss you but I値l be leaving soon.

"I知 going home for Christmas and I知 going home to stay
I知 going home for Christmas and nothing痴 gonna keep me away
I値l be with the ones I love to celebrate the Savior痴 birth
This gift will be worth more to me than anything on earth
I知 going home, home for Christmas."

All the leaves outside have fallen to be covered by the snow
The family comes with food and gifts and Grandpa comes alone
There痴 a sadness in our silence as the Christmas story痴 read
And with tears, Grandpa reminds us of the words that Grandma said:

"I知 going home for Christmas and I知 going home to stay
I知 going home for Christmas and nothing痴 gonna keep me away
She値l be face to face with Jesus as we celebrate His birth
And this gift will be worth more to her than anything on earth
舛ause she値l be home.

"And as we sing 遷oy to the World, I can稚 help thinking
Of the joy that痴 shining in her eyes right now
And though our hearts still ache, we know that as we celebrate
She痴 singing with the herald angels and Heaven痴 glowing on her face

"And now she痴 home for Christmas and now she痴 home to stay
She痴 home for Christmas, and nothin could致e kept her away
She値l be face to face with Jesus, as we celebrate His birth
And this gift will be worth more to her than anything on earth
She痴 home, she痴 home for Christmas
She is home, she痴 home for Christmas."
