Take me home, Father

Take me home, Father.

Too long have I strayed from you,

Wandering through the wastes of a barren wilderness

Driven by deadly desires

Pursued by poisonous passions

Stuck in a silken snare

Tangled in a tender trap

Wrapped in a web of worthless folly.

Having squandered your generous gifts,

I now long to love the Giver.

Bring me back, Lord.

Snap the chains of sin

Break the bonds of selfishness

Lead me to the well of living waters

Turn my feet towards my true resting place

Fix my eyes on the only Beautiful One

Feed me with the fullness of your delights,

Yours alone.
