Running Back to You
by Commissioned



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 me You loved 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.

[Chorus]
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 did I go away
When I know I am no good
When I'm 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 the same excuse
That I am just a man
You tell me You've been there
And show your nailed, scarred hands
So I can see
Now I know I am free

[Chorus]

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
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
You're standing there for me
And I'm running back to you
