Oh what a foolish soul I have been.
I've come to myself, and I wonder now,
Will my Heavenly Father take me in?
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned -
I have wandered astray for many days;
Now broken inside, I'm coming home again -
I'm so tired of my wayward ways.
My thoughts run faster than my feet can go -
What kind of reception awaits me there?
No, I won't falter, I have to know,
"Will He receive me?" my only prayer.
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
No more wandering about in a daze -
Cleanse my heart, make me whole again,
Restore the joys of yesterdays.
What is that on the horizon?
Is that my Father waiting there?
A thousand thoughts hedge my ways...
But with arms opened wide,
He receives me to Himself;
My heart's so filled with love and praise.
Like the Prodigal, I've come home again,
So tired of my wayward ways -
Now a peace within and a song of joy;
My heart's so filled with endless praise.
My heart's so filled with endless praise...
