Homecoming

[Piano version of music] [Vocal sound file, sung by the composer] [Video, sung by the composer] [Score of song]

I'm going to homecoming.
Please go with me?
Homecoming in heaven;
What fun it will be.

It's not a bore at homecoming.
Joy is in store at homecoming.
We'll be with friends
Where nothing offends.
And love never ends, at homecoming.

I'm going to homecoming.
Please go with me?
Homecoming in heaven;
What fun it will be.

We'll have some fun at homecoming;
Be with the Son at homecoming.
Eternally
In heaven we'll be;
And God we will see At homecoming.

This song was written for Spiritual Explosion XVII, the seventeenth annual iteration of a youth rally at Riverside church of Christ in Albuquerque, NM. This year the event will be April 28-30. The theme, if you couldn’t already figure it out, is Homecoming. I asked some high school students what homecoming meant to them. I incorporated some of their responses in this song.
