Mr. John Tillman Sr. Obituary

God has put eternity down deep in my soul, it is a sense that life will continue when this life is gone, I have a dwelling place with God filled by him alone, I'm ready to claim my inheritance sweet, oh I have a home! A place where God wipes all tears from my eyes and death cannot come! There will be no crying, no mourning, no pain, all things will be new, the old passed away when my life here is done, I'll keep living on, oh I have a home!!

Place my body down in the ground but don't weep long, I'll be praising my dear savior bowed down at his Throne I'll enjoy sweet rest with him, A thousand years is one day with him, oh I have a home!! A place where God wipes all tears from my eyes and death cannot come! There will be no crying, no mourning, no pain, all things will be new, the old passed away when my life here is done, I'll keep living on, oh I have a home!!
