A Little Nearer Home

1. Since I started on my journey t’ward the heav’nly land,
Where I’ll join the happy throng around God’s throne,
I have met with many trials hard to understand,
But each day I’ve come a little nearer home

Chorus:

Nearer home, nearer home, Ev-‘ry day I’ve come a little nearer home;
Nearer home, nearer home, Ev-ry day I’ve come a little nearer home.

2. I may pass thro’ days of sorrow like a river deep,
I may see the angry billows dash and foam;
I may need to climb a path-way over mountain steep,
But each day I’ve come a little nearer home.

(Back to Chorus)

3. There are times as I press onward when the road seems long,
But I think of when no longer I shall roam;
Then my soul is filled with gladness and I sing my song,
Ev’ry day I’ve come a little nearer home;

(Back to Chorus)
