I'm Only on a Journey Here

I'm Only on a Journey Here
(Edna Loughlin and Harry West)

Though others plan a future here, I know there's none for me
l'm planning on a mansion bright When from this land l'm free
Though I must travel on the road Where clouds bed in the sky,
l'm only on a journey here, I'll go home by and by.

CHORUS: l'm only on a journey here, I'll go home by and bye
        This world is not my dwelling place, It's far beyond the sky;
        I know that God is listening He hears my every cry,
        I'm only on a journey here, I'll go home by and by.

Man's life on earth is short And filled with many cares,
Trials sad on every hand, And everywhere a snare,
But there is a dwelling place without a tear or sigh,
I'm only on a journey here, I'll go home by and by.
