Lyrics:
How can You forgive me when I've often gone astray
How can You think of me when I do things my way
Turning my back from You the One who loved me first
Having my own desires renewing worldly thirst

You told You love me and I should make up my mind
You tell me come back now but I keep wasting time
Feeling so very weak You say I can be strong
I feel I've gone too far
You tell me to come home You love me still
And I know this is real

And I am running back to You
I see You're standing there for me
Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me and I am running back to You
Why do I go away when I know I am no good when I am on my own

You told me You could keep me but I've turned it away
I've failed You so much now I don't know what to say
Using that same excuse that I am just a man
You tell me You've been there
And hold Your nail scarred hands so I can see now I know I am free

I have taken advantage of Your love and grace
Forgive me Lord
And take me home take me home

I'm running to You Jesus please take me home
You see I've been in this wrong way too long
And I can't do right anymore
I'm tired of pain and I don't like fear
But Lord I want to be more sincere
I never should have left Your side
Return me to Your guiding light
