Does anyone know the rest of this song or the title?

I can almost see the lights of that great city
I see them gathering all around that great white throne
By faith in my savior and His wonderful love
I can almost see the lights of Home

The Lights of Home
by Ray Wafford

John tells of a city that He saw coming down
Where no sorrow or death will be known
That some wonderful day we could go there
through God's marvelous grace,
forever live in that Heavenly home.

Oh, I can almost see the lights of that city,
I see them gathered all around the great white throne
Through faith in my Savior and His wonderful love,
Oh, I can almost see the lights of home.

Well, sometimes when I'm burdened, and my cross gets hard to bear,
and old Satan, he tries to dim my view.
Then I look up to Jesus, He is standing close by
And once again His great light shines through.

John tells of a city that he saw coming down,
when no sorrow, pain or death will be found.
And someday we can go there by His marvelous grace,
I can almost see the lights of Home.

Chorus:
I can almost see the lights of that city,
I can see them gathered around that Great White Throne
Through faith in my Savior and his wonderful love
I can almost see the lights of home.

Somethimes I'm so weary and my cross is hard to bear
And old Satan tries to dim my view
Then I look up to Jesus, He is standing close by,
Oh I can almost see the lights of Home.

The Lights Of Home by Ray Wafford
1. John tells of a City that he saw coming down,
Where no sorrow or death will be known;
That Some day we could go there through God's marvelous grace,
Forever live in that heavenly home.
Chorus:
Oh, I can almost see the lights of that City,]
I see them gathered all around the great white throne;
Through faith in my Saviour and His wonderful love,
Oh, I can almost see the lights of home.
2. Well, sometimes when I'm burdened, and my cross gets hard to bear,
And old Satan, he tries to dim my view;
Then I look up to Jesus, He is standing close by.
And once again His great light shines through.

I had this book and a number of years ago was making a copy of this song and another from the same book....and left the book on the copy machine. The other song is: I'll Really Be Free by James Sego. I have the two copies that I made; one of each song. I really hated to lose the book....didn't know I had left it in a Long's Drug Store on the machine....so lost the book. Don't remember the title of the book....it has been too many years ago; but I typed the words as they are in front of me from the book. I'm going to see if I can locate the book by looking on the computer with the title and the name of the person. I'll try to also find the other song....maybe that way I can find the book that both songs are in.
Hope this helps someone out there.
