Thread Name: Songs on homelessness: faith perspective
Subject: RE: Songs on homelessness: faith perspective
Peter T. reminded me of the Lightfoot song, Home from the Forest which is more 'bitter-sweet' I suppose.

I was also going to suggest the hymn, "Forever with the Lord" and have come up with a lot of versions on the 'net, but not exactly the one I know (old Methodist one). The Lutheran online hymnal has the words, but divided into verses of 4 lines instead of 'my' 8 line version, so presumably a different hymn tune. (and I like the old tent-revival tune which I know.) The Cyber Hymnal has slightly different words (not as relevant), no "nearer home" chorus, and uses Terra Beata - still not the one I'm thinking of.
