Almost Home is new from Matt Papa and Matt Boswell.
I’ve liked the songs that these two have produced, both individually and since they’ve been working together.
To my hearing Almost Home expresses an aspect of Christian endurance and expectation by sort of intoning what that hope is and the ground on which the hope is held.
I think it would be be a helpful addition to other songs that would reference the reason for our hope more directly.

The lyrics
1
Don’t drop a single anchor
We’re almost home
Through every toil and danger
We’re almost home
How many pilgrim saints have before us gone?
No stopping now
We’re almost home
2
That promised land is callin’
We’re almost home
And not a tear shall fall then
We’re almost home
Make ready now your souls for that kingdom come
No turning back
We’re almost home
Refrain
Almost home
We’re almost home
So press on toward that blessed shore
O praise the Lord
We’re almost home
3
This journey ours together
We’re almost home
Unto that great forever
We’re almost home
What song anew we’ll sing ‘round that happy throne
Come faint of heart
We’re almost home
Refrain
4
This life is just a vapor
We’re almost home
That sun is settin’ yonder
We’re almost home
Take courage, for this darkness shall break to dawn
O lift your eyes
We’re almost home
Refrain
Repeat refrain.
