Left alone, cast aside, forgotten and rejected
I fall and stumble in fields muddy, held down by the hands of contempt
I hear a voice it calls to me; it calls from a light burning in the distance
The gentle voice calls "Run to Me and don't look back..."
"I've got you child; you're safe with Me... Run into My awaiting arms... Hurry..."
Through the tears I rise again, I repent again, I dare to hope again
and in desperation I run to You...
You are my God
Forgive me for times when I've turned from You
...when I've disobeyed You
...when I've denied You
...when I set my eyes on something that was not of You
Hold me, Lord
I am Yours and Yours alone
I run to You...
"Come, My precious child," I hear my God call. "Run to Me and don't look back."
"Yesterday is gone; behold, I make all things new... Come, My child. I wait for you."
Through the tears I rise again; I repent again; I dare to hope again
and I run to You...
There is no Love beside You
No Truth I would rather hold
No Peace, no Grace, no Mercy, no Light, no Heart that outshines You
...that reaches the very depths of me
...that has the power to fill me and free me at the same time
You complete me
You enable me
You give me Hope
You give me Life
You give me reason to live
My Lord, My God, you are the very heart of me...
You give me the strength to rise again
to repent again
to hope again
to run to You again...
Here I am, my precious Lord, my One True Love
running into Your open arms...
