Mercyme – Homesick lyrics

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

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

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

And 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
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow

I've never been more homesick than now

    My nephew was killed in a car accident on 4/4/04 at 19 and "I can only imagine" was chosen by his family as the song for the funeral because he loved Mercy me. We could really relate to the song "Homesick" It is longing for the person who has already gone to be "home" with the Lord and us longing for the Lord to fill the void, and knowing that even if God explained why He took them home we would still feel lost. It is nice to know that God will wipe away every tear and there will be no more death or suffering.
