I’m Coming Home

restless wandering around
emptiness creeps in and fills my soul
I’ve been away for years and wonder if
I can ever find my way back home?

will there still be open arms that wait?
will there still be love that covers shame?
will there still be hope and a new start?
will there still be a place called home?

I’ve been falling in my self-made pits
thinking I was strong enough to stand
I could conquer the world and be a star
thinking I would make it on my own

the only light I saw was shallow
didn’t bring me happiness or joy
only temporarily and fast passed by
left me even emptier than before

will there still be open arms that wait?
will there still be love that covers shame?
will there still be hope and a new start?
will there still be a place called home?

drifting farther and farther away from home
the memory of your eyes keep haunting me
the tears and the sadness I saw when leaving
are burned in my heart and never fades

I know you loved me, but I wonder if
you can still love me after all I’ve done
Is there grace and mercy great enough
to cover my shame and welcome me home

will there still be open arms that wait?
will there still be love that covers shame?
will there still be hope and a new start?
will there still be a place called home?

scared and insecure I start to walk
the long way home with head bowed down
do I dare to hope that you
will welcome me with open arms

I’m finally returning back to you
I’m coming home…

«But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.» (Luke 15:20)

«For this son (child) of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.» (Luke 15:24)

«I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
I will build you up again…»
(Jer.31:3-4a)
