Nearing Home (Track #12)

The Lord had a plan for a Carolina man
To share the gospel truth throughout the land
His hardest sacrifice was leaving kids and wife
In the safety of the Father’s loving hands

From sea to shining sea they’d come to hear him preach
And see him walk the walk of which he’d speak
At the end of each crusade his thoughts would drift away
Up that winding mountain road to family

He’s nearing home
Nearing home, nearing home

Princes and kings, they came from miles to seek him
To hear the wisdom of the word of God
People far and wide were born into new life
When he’d proclaim the simple story of the cross

His wife of 60 years, she’s no longer here
He’s weary and his eyes are growing dim
Time has taken its toll on his body but his soul
Is stronger now than it’s ever been

He’s nearing home
Nearing home, nearing home
He’s nearing home
Nearing home, nearing home

Its the end of his crusade
He’ll soon be on his way
He’s nearing home, nearing home
