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 worldy 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 opened 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''m on my own.
You told me you could keep me, but I've turned it away I 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 hold your nail scarred hands so I can see Now I know I am free
Ihave 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 run 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
