Not wanting to offend...

...but I was reminded about this today, and I really like it:

Prodigal's Song

Here I am just a poor man,
Made poorer still by the knowledge of the riches I have squandered.
Oh, I've wandered - I stand convicted
Even knowing that the deepest of my wounds were mostly self-inflicted
Where did my heart go?
Where have I been?
You opened my eyes to the darkness and lies
And I shut them again.
And I want to go home to my Father
I want to be part of where my heart says I belong.
I want to wash my weary soul in living water
I've been away way too long - I want to go home.

Out on the boundaries of my freedom
I was looking for fences that would keep me in and I found there were none.
Only your sweet love, Lord
And, fool that I've been
You broke the chains of my heartache and pain
And I forged them again.

And I want to go home to my Father
I want to be part of where my heart says I belong.
I want to wash my weary soul in living water
I've been away way too long - I want to go home.

Jesus, Lord, please help me , I'll so full of regret
It's so hard to forgive myself, Lord, and it's harder to forget.
I need you to hold me and hear me
I need you to mold me and steer me
By the power of you Word to be the son
You've called me to be.

And I want to go home to my Father
I want to be part of where my heart says I belong.
I want to wash my weary soul in living water
I've been away way too long - I want to go home.

I've been away way too long - I want to go home.

not offended, think it is a wonderul song, and with Faith we please God, what could be better than a song of faith?

Not offensive. Like the song writer, I too need to 'come home' and walk closely with Jesus. Thank you for your boldness in challenging me to come out of my complacency.
