This Prodigal Returns

You know that I deserve this mess,
I've brought it on myself,
Forgive me, Lord, and wash me clean,
Don't put me on the shelf.

I can do no better
If You leave me on my own,
My spirit, Lord, is willing
But my flesh sits on the throne.

I know that I have grieved You,
But Your pride I long to see,
So change me, Lord, please change me
Or still a mess I'll be.

I so regret that others pay
The price for what I've done,
The consequences I must bear,
My guilt born by Your Son.

I plead, Lord, for Your mercy,
This prodigal returns,
Forgiveness You have granted,
The peace my spirit yearns.


Luke 15:11-24

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
