About the song
I wrote this song in July of 2006, for the Homecoming Celebration at Springfield Baptist Church in Natchez. On the morning I was to sing it, I got word that our pastor, Rev. Marvin Cobb had passed away. I wrote the second half that Sunday morning before church.
Verse 1
With precious memories I recall those days of yester year
The gatherings at the country church with friends and family near
The preacher told about a place where streets were paved with gold
Of the Savior's love and cleansing blood that washes white as snow
Verse 2
The choir would sing praise to the King and oh, how sweet the sound
Then after church we'd fellowship with dinner on the ground
The bride of Christ all gathered up to lift His name on high
And thank Him for the grace that saved a sinner such as I
Chorus 1
On Homecoming Day, we'd remenence of times long ago
And trade memories of the days we've shared with those that we love so
Once a year we reunite with friends who've moved away
And celebrate the love we share in Christ . . . Homecoming Day
Verse 3
When Jesus comes to claim His own, we'll walk where angels trod
There'll be one more homecoming day, around the throne of God
The pain will cease, the tears will dry, and death will be no more
When we celebrate Homecoming Day on Heaven's golden shore
Chorus 2
On Homecoming Day there'll be a wondrous meeting in the air
We'll walk hand in hand with Christ our king through Hallelujah Square
The saved on earth will gather to their home beyond the skies
Homecoming Day forever in the sweet by and by
Verse 4
Now listen friends, I'm telling you the road is long and tough
But faith in Him will see you through, His grace is strong enough
Should you decide to join us there, Christ Jesus is the way
He wants you there, His love to share on Homecoming Day

Repeat last line
