Father I’m Running

Home – Phil Wickham

Come riding on a rushing wind
Blow through our hair and touch our skin
I wanna feel You now like I felt You then

Strip away my calloused heart
Set Your arrow, hit Your mark
Can You take me back to where love starts?
Can You take me back to where You are?

I know You’ve heard this all before
When I’m down and crying on the floor
Singing, ‘I want You and nothing more’

Well I’m breaking in my heart tonight
I’ve tried to stand, I’ve tried to fight
But I cannot see without Your light
No, I cannot breathe without You

When I saw You, I was ashamed
You were pure and I was stained
But You ran to me and You called my name
There were tears of joy upon Your face

Father, I’m running, Father, I’m coming home
‘Cause I cannot go on
Your child is running, Father, I’m coming home
Back into Your arms

But while she was still a long way off, her father saw her and felt compassion, and ran and embraced her and kissed her. And the daughter said to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you I am no longer worthy to be called your daughter.”

But the father said to his servants, “Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on her, and put a ring on her hand, and shoes on her feet. And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 

For this my daughter was dead, and is alive again, she is lost, and is found.” 

Luke 15: 20-24
