THE FATHER'S LOVE.

I was huddled in a heap,
Lying, broken, in life's gutter.
I was covered in scars...
Some visible... some invisible...
Some by blows... some by words...
Some by other's deeds...
Dirt clung to me like a leech,
Sins committed - unknowingly - and knowingly!

I was hurting... frightened... ashamed...
Couldn't anyone see what was happening to 'me'?
Some sped busily, busily, on their way,
Too busy to even pass the time of day!
Others stopped, but only for a while,
With eyes downcast - and a false smile.
Something was wrong they knew,
But... the cost of getting involved - phew!

You Loved me enough to Send Your Son to Look for me,
To Bring Your Prodigal child Home to Your Arms of Love.
He Knelt beside me, Touched me with nail-scarred Hands,
Washed away the dirt of sin and shame with His Own Tears of Love!
His Gentle Voice of Love Said, "Here I Am, Come to Me!"
He Lifted up my head so Gently to see-
Your Father's Heart of Love for me alone,
To know one day I'll stand before Your Throne!

Sometimes I wander unintentionally away;
Your Loving Arms Draw me Gently back and onward day by day.
Your Holy Spirit Leads me on,
Teaches, Guides and Comforts as only He can!
Human nature will prodigal always be,
But... submission to Your Will is the only way to be Free.
Your Love for me rules any other way out,
Your Holy Spirit will Complete The Work of Jesus in me, of that there is no doubt!
