“Long Way Home” by Steven Curtis Chapman

from the album Re:creation


Steven Curtis Chapman performs “Long Way Home” LIVE on K-Love from the album, “Re:creation.” I always enjoy the live versions of songs as they seem to have little more depth and feeling to them. This version is fun as he plays his ukulele.

“Long Way Home” Song Lyrics:

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

But 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’ve 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 the long way home

I got some rocks on my shoes
Fears I wish I could lose
They make the mountains so hard to climb
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometimes

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

I know that day is coming
I know it’s gonna be here soon
I won’t turn back even if the whole world says I’m going the wrong way
Cause it’s just the long way home

And when we can’t take another step
The Father will pick us up and carry us in His arms
And even on the best days
He says to remember we’re not home yet
So don’t get too comfortable
Cause really all we are is just pilgrims passing through

Well 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 everything He says is true
And I know wherever we go
He will never ever leave us
Cause He’s going to lead us home
Every single step of the long way home

Keep on, were gonna make it
I know we’re gonna make it
We’re just taking the long way home

(end lyrics)

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand..”

Psalm 37:23-24

“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Philippians 3:20

Enjoy this song and remember, no matter how difficult the way He promises to hold us steady!

God bless you,
