Homecoming Day – a Poem from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Homecoming Day


While once we walked in sweetness with the saints who passed this way,

Reunion time is coming for us on Homecoming Day.

Although we dearly miss them and it causes us to weep,

We must recall that in the grave their bodies are asleep.


The Lord Himself shall wake them with a shout upon that day

And they shall go before us in their glorious array.

Then we shall rise to meet them as up through the air we fly

To evermore be with the Lord and never say “Goodbye.”


This promise is a comfort to all those who know the Lord,

the One who died and rose again and comes with rich reward.

So if we trust in Jesus, when we too have passed this way

We shall be reunited on that blessed Homecoming Day.



-Doug Smith
