The Prodigal Song


The Prodigal Song
To Love a Fool


Verse 1

How faintly I remember Your love song over me

But the further that I wander, the noise is deafening

Now the only thing I feel is how far You are away

This distance now between us is driving me insane

 

Chorus 1

Father, I miss You

My heart is ready now

To follow the sound, the sound of Your voice

That echoes inside

Father I’m desperate

I lost my way somehow

I’ll follow the truth, the truth of Your love

Back into the light

Lead me back home

 

Verse 2

I traded trust for pleasure and diamonds for fool’s gold

I made the world my treasure, but underpriced my soul

Then a whisper through the numbness, a melody of hope

That love song I remember is leading me back home

 

Bridge

But I never reach the gate

Before You come running to me

All the words I’ve rehearsed for days

Just fall at Your feet

No, I never reach the gate

Before You come running to me

All the years I threw away

In one embrace are redeemed

 

Chorus 2

Father I’ve missed You

My heart is overwhelmed

Here in Your arms, is where I belong

Forever at home

Father, I love You

Nothing could take Your place

You were the first and You’ll be the last

Love of my soul

Lead me back home

X

We'd Love to Stay Connected with You.
