Song 7/30/00

Verse 1
Oh Lord, my feet are blistered.
Oh Lord, my heart is sore.
Not sure that I want to go on anymore.
Knowing I can't run I fall to the floor
And I cry please meet me Lord!
Sometimes the tears won't come
Sometimes the tears I cannot stop
My heart is heaving, breaking
and I'm sure I will die
But the faith You've place inside tells me
I must reach up to You.
So as I lay in my bed
With fears raging within.
I slowly reach my arms out to You.

CHORUS
And You call and say:
Child I've been waiting
For you to turn to Me.
So many times I watched you running away from Me
But now you're home
You're safe.
And though you may not see it, and sometimes
You don't believe it.
But I will always tell you that I love you!

Verse 2
So many times I hid from God
And went along my way.
I always thought that I was wise,
as I stumbled along deception's way.
I was sure that I could handle each
and everything myself.
But the more I kept on going
I didn't recognize myself.
Then one day I was tired
And I began to ask myself.
"Where am I?"
"Who Am I?"
"What have I done to myself?"
And then I cried,
"Oh Lord, I feel so empty
I've gone so far from You.
I don't know how to go from here,
But I am trusting You.
So please forgive me of my sins
And all the wrong I've done.
Please come in and change my heart
And heal these gaping wounds.
And You call and say:
Chorus




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

Great lyrics, great words Sonia; this song if it has not been put to music it should be!! And I can imagine Michael W Smith putting his vocals to such a beautiful song - I love the Title as well. God bless and my prayer for you is that it will win A Dove or Grammy in Jesus' faithful name!!!

Sonia, This is so very beautiful. A visual picture of the Father's love painted with words. Great job! Thanks.
Nina Phillips 06 Jul 2005
Sonia, that is so true. I know there are times that I questioned the Lord about his love, and he never failed one time to show me that it is everlasting. I liked the words of the Chorus very much speaking to our hearts. In Christ, and him in us, littlelight
