Oh what a world to take my breath away
From canyon deep to star above
All take their place to start the symphony
of a great big love

I’ve seen the valley from the mountaintop
Sailed cross the blue and back again
From east to west
Majestic tapestry I can’t comprehend
(but that’s not where I long to be)
(That’s not where I long to be…)

[Chorus]
Now I’m stuck here but I
don’t belong here though my
heart and soul are inclined to roam
time is coming when I’ll
be with my Jesus But for now I’m far from home

(ye~ah yeah…)

Though I'm a stranger in a strange land
This land can be a lot of fun, yeah
I’d start a list of all that thrills me
And never get done
(but that’s not where I long to be)
(That’s not where I long to be…)

[Chorus]
Now I’m stuck here but I
don’t belong here though my
heart and soul are inclined to roam
time is coming when I’ll
be with my Jesus but for
now I’m far from home

Shubidee doo badow [repeat]
Diggadum dum badow
(That’s not where I long to be…)

[Chorus]
Now I’m stuck here but I
don’t belong here though my
heart and soul are inclined to roam
Time is coming when I’ll
be with my Jesus but for now
I’m far from home
(Now I’m stuck here but I)
I don’t belong here
Though my heart and soul are inclined to roam
Time is coming when I’ll
be with my Jesus
But for now I’m far (so far)
I wanna be where you are
Maybe I’m not so far from home
