Wish
 

Welcome Home

For just a moment I wish I could have been there
To see Your first step, hear Your very first word
Tell me, did You ever fall and scrape Your knee?
Did You know Your wounds would one day heal the world?
For just one moment I wish I could have seen You growing
Learning the ways of a carpenter's son
Just a little boy gazing at the stars
But You remember creating every one
If You passed by, would I have seen a child or a King? Would I have known?

CHORUS:
I wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You face to face
Wish I could have been there
Just to see You, Jesus, face to face

For just a moment I wish I could have been there
When You had left Your footprints upon the waves
To walk along beside You and never look away
Its just Your whisper and the wind and sea obey
To see You feed the people, to feel Your healing in Your touch

CHORUS

To hear You pray in the garden alone laying down Your will with each tear
To see You walk that lonely road willing to die for me
And in that moment I know I should have been there
You took my cross and gave Your life
And You live again
And You live again!

CHORUS:
Wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You rise again
Wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You, Jesus, face to face

Someday I'll be there, I'm gonna be there
I'll see Your face, Your mercy, Your grace
Someday, someday
I'm gonna see You, Jesus face to face
