Going Home

After Symf. 9/II, Antonin Dvorák

Sometimes it occurs that an original melody proves so popular that, sooner or later, a text is added. Famous examples include ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ by Edward Elgar or ‘I Vow to Thee, my Country’ by Gustav Holst, both of which melodies come from symphonic works.
In the second movement of his ninth symphony, Antonín Dvořák (1841 – 1904) composed a melody for cor anglais in short phrases which is immediately memorable and especially suitable for the addition of a text. (arr.: Jelle Stellingwerf )

After Symf. 9/II, Antonin Dvořák — Lyrics: William A. Fischer

Going home, going home,
I am going home.
Quiet like some still day
I am going home.
It's not far, just close by,
Through an open door.
Work all done, care laid by,
never fear no more.
Mother's there expecting me;
Father's waiting too.
Lots of faces gathered there,
All the friends I knew.
I'm just going home.

No more fear, no more pain.
Nothing lost, all's gain.
No more stumbling by the way,
No more longing for the day;
Going to run no more.
Morning star lights the way,
Restless dreams all gone.
Shadows gone, break of day,
Real life has begun.
There’s no break, there’s no end,
Just living on.
Wide awake, with a smile going on and on.

Going home, going home,
I am going home.
The shadows gone, break of day,
Real life has begun.
I'm just going home.
