Steven Curtis Chapman – Long Way Home lyrics

I set out on a great adventure
The day my Father started leading me home
He said there's gonna be some mountains to climb
And some valleys we're gonna go through

Well I had no way of knowing
Just how hard this journey could be
Cause the valleys are deeper
And the mountains are steeper
Than I ever would have dreamed

But I know we're gonna make it
And I know we're gonna get there soon
And I know sometimes it feels like we're going the wrong way
It's just a long way home

I got some rocks in my shoes
Fears I wish I could lose
That makes the mountains so hard to climb
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometime

There's a bag of regrets,
My should of beens and not yet
I keep on dragging around
And I can hardly wait for the day I get to lay it all down

But I know that day is coming
And I know it's gonna be there soon
And I won't turn back even if the whole world says I'm going the wrong way
Cause It's just a long way home

When we can't take another step
Our Father will pick us up and carry us in His arms
And even on the best days
He said to remember we're not home yet
So don't get too comfortable
Which really all we are
Are just pilgrims passing through

But I know we're gonna make it
And I know we're gonna get there soon
So I'll keep on singing and believing
What all of my songs say
Cause our God has made a promise
And I know that everything He says is true
And I know wherever we go,
He will never leave us
Cause he's gonna lead us home
Every single step of the long way home

We're Just taking the long way home
Taking the long way home (repeat)
