Lord, bring me back.

Bring me back to Your ancient foundation

Where all things hold together.

Because I forgot it for a while;

I left on a road that tempted me with roses

And only gave me the thorns.

How did I end up this far away?

I barely even noticed it happening,

But now my legs are shaking

And they are cut and bleeding.

I was searching for love,

But it was not in You.

You are my home,

But I cannot come back myself.

I need You to carry me,

Because I can’t do it myself.

So grant me Your grace

And the forgiveness so often sung about.

Protect me

And my lovesick heart.

Lash me to Your foundation

And help me to never let go.

Bind my wandering heart to Thee.

 

“Here I raise my Ebenezer;

Here there by Thy great help I’ve come;

And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,

Safely to arrive at home.”
