Carry Me Home

Rick Modlin/Owen Alstott

 

1. End of day softly falling into night.

O Jesus, carry me home.

Now the work of the present day is done.

O Jesus, carry me home.

2. Joyful song, joyful laughter silent fall.

O Jesus, carry me home.

Pure and bright shall the mem’ry linger on.

O Jesus, carry me home. 

Refrain

Carry me home, carry me home.

O Jesus, carry me home.

Carry me home, carry me home.

O Jesus, carry me home.
3. In God’s hands to forever safely rest.

O Jesus, carry me home.

Now fulfilled in creation’s wondrous plan.
O Jesus, carry me home. (Refrain)
Coda

As my last prayer ascends, ’

round me fam’ly and gentle friends.

Carry me home, carry me home.

O Jesus, carry me home. O Jesus, carry me home.
