The Prodigal

I have been being blessed more and more lately by the music ministry of Soverign Grace.  Rarely today do we find such depth of truth, accuracy, and heart-felt worship.  I listened to and watched this music video this morning and it left me tearing up and praising my amazing God for His grace found in His Son.  I commend it to anyone for their humiliation and edification.

Here are the lyrics:

You held out Your arms, I walked away
Insolent I spurned Your face
Squandering the gifts You gave to me
Holding close forbidden things
Destitute a rebel still, a fool in all my pride
The world I once enjoyed is death to me
No joy, no hope, no life

Where now are the friends, that I had bought
Gone with every penny lost
What hope could there be for such as I
Sold out to a world of lies
Oh, to see Your face again, it seems so distant now
Could it be that You would take me back
A servant in Your house

You held out Your arms, I see them still
You never left, You never will
Running to embrace me, now I know
Your cords of love will always hold
Mercy’s robe, a ring of grace
Such favor undeserved
You sing over me and celebrate
The rebel now Your child
