Homesick - MercyMe
Written by: Bart Millard
Album: Undone


**Capo 3 for the recorded key**


Intro: D9  G  A  G   D9  Bm  G

       D9                               G
You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
        D9                            G
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
         C9                         A
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
   D/F#  G          A               D9  D
Is how long must I wait to be with you


Chorus:
D9                  G
I close my eyes and I see your face
    A                            D            D/C#
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
                Bm                   A                   G
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
      A               G             D
I've never been more homesick than now


D9  G  A  G


D9                                G
Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
     D9                           G
The reason why, I wonder if I'll ever know
      C9                         A
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
      D/F#  G                 A        D9  D
Cause I'm still here so far away from home


CHORUS

    A                        G
In Christ, there are no goodbyes
        A                   G
And in Christ, there is no end
         A                   Bm
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
       Em                Asus4
To see you again, to see you again


Last Chorus:
D9                  G
I close my eyes and I see your face
    Bm                            A          G
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
                D/F#                                     G
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
           A                                       G
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
                D/F#                                     G
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
      A               G             D9
I've never been more homesick than now

D9  G  A  G

This is absolutely perfect. My best friend died this past year. She was only 16
and it's been very hard on me. This song is beautiful and gives me encouragement
everytime I hear it. Thank you.
