Are you disappointed Are you desperate for help You know what it's like to be tired And only a shell of yourself Well you start to believe You don't have what it takes Cause it's all you can do Just to move much less finish the race But don't forget what lies ahead
Almost home Brother it won't be long Soon all your burdens will be gone With all your strength Sister run wild run free Hold up your head Keep pressing on We are almost home
Well this road will be hard But we win in the end Simply because of Jesus in us It's not if but when So take joy in the journey Even when it feels long Oh find strength in each step Knowing heaven is cheering you on
We are almost home Brother it won't be long Soon all your burdens will be gone With all your strength Sister run wild run free Hold up your head Keep pressing on We are almost home Almost home Almost home
I know that the cross has brought heaven to us But make no mistake there's still more to come When our flesh and our bone are no longer between Where we are right now and where we're meant to be When all that's been lost has been made whole again When these tears and this pain no longer exist No more walking we're running as fast as we can Consider this our second wind
Almost home Brother it won't be long Soon all your burdens will be gone With all your strength Sister run wild run free Hold up your head Keep pressing on We are almost home Almost home Almost home We are almost home Almost home Almost home We are almost home
