Adam Geibel (1855–1933)


When I see life’s golden sunset
Lighting up the rosy west,
When the shadows backward
O’er my way are cast;
I shall look upon that moment
As the one supremely blest,
I’m going home at last.


I’m going home at last,
I’m going home at last;
When my work on earth is ended
And my race below is run,
I’m going home at last.

Tho’ the road at times was weary,
Over which my feet have trod,
Tho’ thro’ many tribulations
I have passed;
Yet I soon will reach my mansion
In the city of our God,
I’m going home at last.


When I pass down thro’ the valley
And the shadow of the dead,
To my blessèd Sav­ior’s hand
I will hold fast;
He has promised to go with me,
So my soul will have no dread,
I’m going home at last.
