I'm looking for lyrics to "Longing For Jesus" by Dick Baker.  Probably written in late 40's or early 50's.

I'm longing for that glorious day
When Jesus Christ shall come
I long to see His blessed face
When all the saints throughout the ages
Shall be gathered home
The ones who've trusted in His grace

CHORUS
I'm longing for Jesus to come back
I long for Jesus Christ my King
To come and take me to
My home beyond the sky
Up there where saints
Will shout and sing

Oh what a glorious times will be
When through the air I go
To meet the one who died for me
My sorrows, cares, my trials, my tears
Will all be left below
For then my way will be complete

I have another verse Here is the whole song.

I’m Longing For Jesus To Come Back

I’m longing for that glorious day
when Jesus Christ shall come
I long to see His blessed face
When all the saints throughout the ages
Shall be gathered home
The ones who trusted in His grace

Chorus
I’m longing for Jesus to come back
I long for Jesus Christ my King
To come and take me to my home beyond the sky
Up there where angels shout and sing

Sometimes the road seems rough and hard
The pathway seems so long
But He is always by my side
He whispers loving words to me
And tells me to be strong
That He will always lead and guide

I’m longing for that glorious day
When through the air I go
To meet the ones who’ve gone before
My trials, cares, my sorrows, tears
Will all be left below
And then my way will be complete

Chorus x 2

Longing For Jesus by Dick Baker is not the song I know listed above. This song has been my theme song in my music ministry since around 1971. I lost my copy years ago, but know it by heart so here goes:

1. I have a longing in my heart for Jesus. I have a longing in my heart for Him.
    Altho I know His presence lingers near me,I have a longing just to see His face.

2. I have a longing just to walk with Jesus. I have a longing just to hold His hand.
    To know He's there forever near to guide me, To know His love will never let me
     go.

3.  To you who do not know this man named Jesus. You've never lived or found
      life's greatest joy.
    Oh want you now take Him as Lord and Savior, And know the fullness of His
      matchless love.

CHORUS:  Longing, longing for Jesus. I have a longing in my heart for Him. Just to be near Him, To feel His presence. I have a longing in my heart for Him.
