LYRICS

Lord, there’s a war raging outside

And I feel I am caught in the middle sometimes

Help me to keep my eyes on You

In the middle of all this ugliness

I know that there is still beauty to be found

Help me to see what You see

 

And even though these days are so dark

I know before the beginning of time

You have chosen me,  to be here right now

So I thank You today that You have sent me out

Into this broken world, to be Your light

I know that this is all temporary

 

Oh, I can’t wait until I stand

There face to face and hear You say

My child, You’re finally Home

Oh, I look forward to that day

When You say, “Well done My child,

You have kept the faith, you have run the race

You’re finally Home”

 

Lord, I know that my life on earth brings a harvest

And I know when I leave I will be with You

Sometimes I admit, Im torn between these two

So help me not to loose heart

These light afflictions are but for a moment

There’s a far more exceeding and eternal reward

 

Oh, I can’t wait until I stand

There face to face and hear You say

My child, You’re finally Home

Oh, I look forward to that day

When You say, “Well done My child,

You have kept the faith, you have run the race

You’re finally Home

 

I have kept my eyes on You all the time

I saw your struggles, I saw your pain

I heard you everytime when you called My name

I was there for you when You thought I left

And when You felt that You’d reached the end of your rope

I breathed my life into every dried dead bone

 

I have kept my eyes on You all the time

I saw your struggles, I saw your pain

I heard you everytime when you called My name

And whhen you felt forsaken, when you felt all alone

I whispered in your ear

You’re almost Home

You’re almost Home

 

Oh I can’t wait until I stand

There face to face and hear You say

“My child, You’re finally Home”

I look forward to that day

When You say

“Well done my child, You have kept the faith

You have run the race

You’re finally Home

You’re finally Home

You’re finally Home

 

I knew you would come

I knew you’d choose Me

Above all things

You’re finally Home”
