Sunday Morning Mountain Gospel Music 129

Almost Home
Written by  Lloyd Copas, Paul Bennett and Marshall Pack, sung by Dr. Ralph Stanley
 
 
Almost Home

For many long years
I've traveled this road
I'm weary and tired
of carrying this load
so often I'm tempted
with Satan to bow
but I'm too near Home
to turn back now

Almost Home, I'm almost Home
almost Home, I'm almost Home
I know my race is nearly run,
I know my race is nearly run
Through trouble and sorrow
I've already come
Through troubles and sorrow
I've already come

I can't turn back now
for I'm too near home
I can't turn back now
for I'm too near home

As I stand by the river
that Homeland I see
that beautiful Mansion
that He built for me
just a few days to linger
and I'll go across
I know what awaits me
will be worth all the cost

Almost Home,
I'm almost Home
almost Home,
 
I'm almost Home
I know my race is nearly run,
I know my race is nearly run
Through trouble and sorrow
I've already come,
Through troubles and sorrow
I've already come

I can't turn back now
for I'm too near Home,
I can't turn back now
for I'm too near Home

When my labor on earth
I must lay down,
I'll go to receive
my beautiful Crown
It's "goodbye" my friends
I've met on my way
I'll meet them again
on that Homecoming Day

Almost Home,
I'm almost Home
Almost Home,
I'm almost Home

I know my race is nearly run,
I know my race is nearly run
Through trouble and sorrow
I've already come,
through trouble and sorrow
I've already come

I can't turn back now
for I'm too near Home
I can't turn back now
for I'm too near Home...
