MercyMe “Homesick” EGP Blog post from December 10, 2012

You’re in a better place, I’ve heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I’ve rejoiced for you
But the reason why I’m broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t You give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord ‘cause I don’t understand Your ways
The reason why I wonder if I’ll ever know
But, even if You showed me, the hurt would be the same
‘Cause I’m still here so far away from home

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I’ll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again…to see you again!

Key verses

Revelation 21:3–5
